“I am deeply saddened to learn that Congresswoman Louise Slaughter has passed away.”


“Louise was a gifted lawmaker, a wonderful colleague, and a great friend. As the daughter of a coal miner who became one of the most powerful women in Congress, Louise personified the American Dream. She helped lead the efforts to pass the Violence Against Women Act, the Affordable Care Act, and other legislation that improved the lives of millions of Americans. Her leadership will be greatly missed.”
