Casey Statement on the Passing of Senator Frank Lautenberg

Washington, DC— Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on the passing of Senator Frank Lautenberg:

“I was saddened to learn of the passing of my friend and colleague, Senator Frank Lautenberg. I had the honor and privilege of working with him in the Senate, including a 2009 Congressional delegation trip to Israel and Turkey. The trip greatly contributed to our understanding of the Middle East Peace Process, and Frank’s presence was invaluable to our delegation.   He was a tireless advocate for the people of New Jersey, and his efforts in important areas such as public health, education, transportation and veterans will leave a lasting legacy. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Bonnie, his children and his grandchildren.”
