Washington, DC – Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today released the following statement on the passing of Stewart Udall, former Secretary of the Interior:

“Stewart Udall was one of the greatest Secretaries of the Interior in my lifetime. Secretary Udall, who also served in the U.S. House of Representatives, was a pioneer and visionary in protecting America's natural resources and cultural heritage who exemplified his family's commitment to public service. In January of last year he shared with me his continued vision of how to move forward with a renewed commitment for preserving and conserving America's great natural and cultural landscapes in the 21st century. Stewart Udall will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers go out to Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico and to his entire family.”
