Congresswoman Kay Granger issued the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

“Justice Antonin Scalia was a vibrant and principled voice for conservative values on the Supreme Court. He based his opinions and dissents on adherence to the Constitution, and he fought to ensure that the Court did not set its own will above the Congress or the American people. He will be sorely missed, and will be remembered as one of the most influential Supreme Court Justices.”
