Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s statement regarding the recent passing of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (NY-25).

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of my colleague, Congresswoman Louise Slaughter. I was honored to serve with Louise on the House Committee on Rules.  Though we disagreed on most issues, I was privileged to have the chance to watch Louise in action and to learn from her.  I will never forget her courage, dignity, grace, and good humor.  She never stopped fighting for the causes in which she believed and the people she served.  We will miss her very much on the Rules Committee and in the Congress. Phil and I will be keeping Louise and her family in our thoughts and prayers.”
