Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, the senior Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, on Wednesday threatened to block the confirmation of future Treasury nominees unless the Bush administration backs down on rules that could impact agricultural trade with Cuba. “I am prepared to hold up the next significant Treasury Department nominee until this gets resolved,” said Baucus. News reports have speculated that President Bush will move soon to replace Treasury Secretary John Snow
