Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), the senior Democratic member of the Education and the Workforce Committee, issued the following statement today after learning that his former committee colleague, former Rep. Major Owens (D-N.Y.), died yesterday.

"Major Owens was valued member of the committee who led a decades-long fight for educational equity and pushed for poor students to have access to the opportunity to succeed in school by having equal educational resources available to them. Major loved the hard work of fighting for America's poor and middle class families, for workers, and for the rights of minorities. I offer my condolences to his wife Maria and their children, but I also offer them my sincere appreciation for the work that Major did for our country."
