Comptroller DiNapoli Statement on the Passing of Assembly Member James Conte

It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of my former colleague and fellow Long Islander Assembly Member James Conte.

Jim was a strong and tireless advocate for Long Island residents for decades. His work to increase funding for public education and his longstanding commitment to preserving and protecting our natural environment will only serve to enhance his legacy in the years to come. I admired his efforts to promote organ donation awareness and applauded, along with many in our state, when his "Lauren's Law" legislation was passed into law this year.

Jim Conte was a dedicated, hard-working and proud public servant who made Long Island's voice heard in Albany. He will be missed by his friends and colleagues.
