Sep 29, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C.Sen. Peter Welch (D-VT) today released the following statement on the passing of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA): 

“Senator Feinstein spent three decades in the Senate, fighting to elevate and amplify the voices of those who are under-represented in the halls of Congress–breaking down barriers for women, fighting for LGBTQ+ rights, and leading on pressing issues ranging from our national security to gun violence prevention. She was a trailblazer and leader for our caucus, and her work on the Intelligence and Judiciary Committees brought lasting change to our nation. It was an honor to serve with Senator Feinstein during her long and storied career fighting for the people of California.”
