Former U.S. Sen. Warren B. Rudman, who co-authored a ground-breaking budget balancing law, has died at age 82.

Rudman's Washington, D.C., firm, the Albright Stonebridge Group, says he died Monday night.

The feisty New Hampshire Republican went to the Senate in 1981 with a reputation as a tough prosecutor. He was called upon by Senate leaders and presidents of both parties to tackle tough assignments.

He is perhaps best known for his co-sponsorship of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings budget cutting law. He left the Senate in 1993, frustrated that the law never reached its potential because of Congress.

Before his election to the Senate, he served six years as New Hampshire's attorney general.
