ENNIS — Congressman Joe Barton (R- Ennis/Arlington) released the following statement on the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

“Justice Scalia was a consistent, common sense conservative voice and vote on our nation’s highest court for decades. Scalia took his oath to the Constitution seriously and authored some of the most important dissent opinions of our time. He will be sorely missed, and certainly remembered as one of the most influential Supreme Court Justices.”
