WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) today issued the following statement on the passing of former Senate Budget Committee Chairman Pete Domenici (R-NM):

“My first job on Capitol Hill was in the Senate, back when Pete Domenici was Budget Chairman. He was this larger-than-life figure who clearly relished the chance to serve and get things done. I learned so much from him, not just on budget issues but also how to be truly committed to your craft. He remains a great inspiration to me. The whole House is thinking of Senator Domenici’s family today.”
