(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver on Friday released the following statement after hearing that U.S. Frank Lautenberg was diagnosed with treatable stomach cancer:

“One thing we all know for sure about Sen. Lautenberg is that he’s a tough guy who never backs down from a fight, so we have no reason to expect anything but a full and complete recovery.

“As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t be too surprised to soon hear how he’s once again outpacing younger aides as they walk through U.S. Capitol building. After all, nothing has ever been able to hold Sen. Lautenberg down.

“On behalf of the General Assembly, I wish Sen. Lautenberg well and look forward to seeing him return to the job he has done so well.”
