Rep. Lantos CURIA co-sponsor dies at 80
WASHINGTON (2/12/08)—Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.), known to credit unions as a supporter of regulatory relief legislation, died Monday morning at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, according to his office. Lantos, the only survivor of the Holocaust ever to serve in Congress, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in December and subsequently announced he would not seek re-election due to his anticipated medical treatments. At the time of his decision, Lantos said, “It is only in the United States that a penniless survivor of the Holocaust and a fighter in the anti-Nazi underground could have received an education, raised a family, and had the privilege of serving the last three decades of his life as a Member of Congress. I will never be able to express fully my profoundly felt gratitude to this great country.“ “Tom Lantos was a distinguished member of Congress and a friend to credit unions,” Ryan Donovan, vice president of legislative affairs fro the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), said Monday. “He will be sorely missed in the House, and in the country, and across the world,” he added. Lantos, known as a unwavering human rights advocate, was a co-sponsor of the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (CURIA, H.R. 1537).
