(FRESNO) - Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) released the following statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

"The passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a sad day for all of America. A woman jurist who broke the glass ceiling in so many different ways, she was strong advocate on behalf of women’s rights and civil justice. She made a difference. Justice Ginsburg was respected by conservative and moderate jurists. Her ability to build bridges with giants like Justice O’Connor and Justice Scalia is one of many examples on how she balanced the scales of justice."
