Congressman Leonard Lance released the following statement on the passing of U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg:
"Senator Frank Lautenberg will always be remembered as a dedicated public servant and a tenacious fighter for New Jersey. A proud Veteran of World War II he was New Jersey's longest-serving member of the U.S. Senate. My wife Heidi and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Lautenberg family during this difficult time. May Senator Lautenberg rest in peace."
