Vitale Statement on the Passing of Ronald Rice


Trenton – Senator Joe Vitale, Chair of the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee, issued the following statement on the passing of former Senator Ronald Rice:


“I can’t adequately express my sorrow at the news of Ron’s passing. I had the great honor to serve with Ron for many years on the Senate Health Committee. He was always a champion for those in our state who are most at-risk, and have less access to quality health care. Ron believed rightly and passionately that affordable care should not be a privilege but a right. His fearlessness and forthrightness on that and many other issues will be sorely missed.”
