WASHINGTON – I'm saddened today to learn of Senator Frank R. Lautenberg's passing, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family. Senator Lautenberg worked to protect children and families from harmful pollutants and modernize our chemical safety laws, and he fought tirelessly to combat the threat of climate change. He was a true environmental champion, and today Americans are healthier and safer due to his tireless work.
