WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Chamber President and CEO Suzanne Clark today issued the following statement after the passing of Senator Bob Dole.
"Bob Dole dedicated his life wholly to serving the nation he loved.

As a pragmatic leader who was adept at making deals, he helped shepherd major and enduring policy achievements that continue to benefit Americans.
