WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Portman issued the following statement following news Monday of the passing of former Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi:
“Mike Enzi’s sudden passing is heartbreaking and Jane and I are sending our thoughts to his wife, Diana, and his entire family. Mike was a great friend and I have tremendous respect for what he accomplished on behalf of the people of Wyoming and our country. During his time as Chair of the Senate HELP Committee he was a leader in passing crucial pension reforms, expanding access to health care and affordable education, and improving workplace safety.
“More recently, I saw him put his skills as an accountant to work as Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, where he spent the final part of his nearly 25 years in the Senate pushing for smarter spending in a time of exploding deficits. No matter what he did, Mike conducted himself with class and dignity and he was a model public servant. He will be dearly missed for the work he did and the example he set.”
