"I would like to express my deepest regrets for the passing of Coretta Scott King. Along with her husband Martin Luther King, Jr., she was a pillar in the civil rights movement and until her last months fought for racial, economic, and social justice for all. She was woman of great strength and changed the course of history in our nation. She will continue to be an inspiration for generations to come.

I, along with many other members of Congress are sponsoring a Congressional Resolution honoring her life and accomplishments as a leader in the struggle for civil rights and expresses condolences to the King family as they mourn her passing."
