WASHINGTON, D.C. —The U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued the following statement today on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“As well as being a most highly regarded and respected leader on the Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a fearless trailblazer, advocate, and at times, dissenter.

“Through her life and service, she set the standard for civility and collegiality, exemplifying for all of us how people with strong views can conduct their business and their negotiations—with kindness, courtesy, commonsense, and great effect.

“In so many ways, she embodied the greatest of American virtues and values, and the Supreme Court and our nation greatly benefited from her distinguished service and contributions. Her loss is staggering, but her legacy will continue to inspire generations of Americans.”
