Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement today in regards to the Dedication of the Statue of Rosa Louise Parks in the U.S. Capitol.

"The courage, strength and determination of Rosa Parks, which came to light on a bus in Montgomery nearly 60 years ago, continues to inspire us all. Her efforts helped to break barriers across our nation, and allowed future generations to accomplish things our parents or grandparents may not have thought possible. As her likeness takes its place in the United States Capitol, Ms. Parks will rightfully stand beside a multitude of American heroes. It was truly an honor to attend the dedication of her statue today, an event I will not soon forget."
