SEATTLE, WA – Representative Adam Smith (D-Wash.), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, today issued the following statement on the passing of former Congresswoman Jolene Unsoeld. 
“With the passing of Congresswoman Unsoeld, Washington State – and the entire country – have lost a true champion for women, children, and the health of our planet. Congresswoman Unsoeld understood that few things are more important than protecting our environment, and she was a force for women’s rights. My thoughts are with Congresswoman Unsoeld’s family and loved ones as they mourn their loss.”
