LAS VEGAS - Congressman Joe Heck (NV-03) today released the following statement upon learning the news that former Nevada representative Barbara Vucanovich passed away.

"I am deeply saddened at the loss of Barbara Vucanovich and I join Nevadans around the state in mourning her passing. As the first woman to represent Nevada in the House of Representatives, Barbara was a true trailblazer and all of us who serve as elected officials have been influenced by her remarkable career in some way. As a Senate staffer and a Member of Congress, Barbara was a tireless advocate for the state of Nevada and I have tried to follow her example in serving Nevada's third district in the House. I offer my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to her family and will keep them in my prayers as they cope with their loss."
