The Hill's 2011 50 Wealthiest in Congress


Lautenberg saw a more than $5 million boost in his fortune in 2010.

That rise can be partly explained by the New Jersey senator not reporting any liabilities last year, compared to the minimum $500,000 promissory note he had with TD Bank in 2009.

Lautenberg co-founded Automatic Data Processing, the payroll processing company, and served as its chairman and CEO. The Democrat still has at least $1 million in stock in the company. 

Lautenberg’s spouse, Bonnie Englebardt, has several real estate properties in New York City that are worth at least $1 million each. The senator also has investments in commercial real estate in Connecticut, Florida and Hawaii.
