The retiring lawmaker said, “I have been a lifelong stutterer, and when I was young, I experienced some very difficult times.”

Wolf added, more than 70 million people stutter, including 3 million Americans. He stressed that early intervention is necessary.

“If you stutter, or if a child or loved one stutters, or if you even think they might be stuttering, get help immediately,” Wolf said.
