Statement by President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the Passing of Former Representative Dan Rostenkowski

August 11, 2010

"We are deeply saddened by the passing of our friend Dan Rostenkowski. Dan was a great chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, whose ability to get things done in Congress was indispensable in balancing the budget, while investing more in better education and in getting our economy on the right course at the end of the 20th century. We were also glad to work closely with him on health care reform, welfare reform, and crime prevention. He was a tireless advocate for the people of Chicago and a true patriot who served our country well. Our thoughts and prayers are with LaVerne and their three daughters."
