Rep. George Miller (D-CA), the senior Democratic member on the House Education and the Workforce Committee, issued the following statement today following President Obama's new policy recommendations to reduce gun violence.
"I applaud President Obama for moving so quickly to develop a comprehensive plan to reduce gun violence in the United States and in our schools. I support his proposal and urge Congress to work quickly to pass it. I also look forward to working with Chairman Kline and Members of our committee on sensible steps to increase safety in our schools to ensure our children's days are spent learning and growing, not in fear for their lives. Nothing is more important than the safety of our children. We must act now."
