Statement on the Passing of Vic Fazio

Former Representative and Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget board member Victor “Vic” Fazio died at the age of 79.

The Committee is deeply saddened by the loss of our valued board member, colleague and friend. Having served two decades in the House of Representatives, he was a tireless public servant who was not afraid to work across the aisle in serving his constituents and the national interest. Vic was a dedicated and engaged member of our board and a strong voice for fiscal responsibility. The Committee was lucky to benefit from Vic’s years of experience and knowledge. He’ll be missed and we extend our deepest condolences to his family.
