George Miller

U.S. Representative, California

Congressman George Miller is the Senior Democrat on the House Education and Workforce Committee and a leading advocate in Congress on education, labor, the economy, and the environment. First elected in 1975, he now represents the 11th District of California in the East Bay of San Francisco. A principal author of major laws affecting America’s education system, labor and health policy, and the protection of natural resources, Miller announced in January this year that he will not seek a 21st term in the House this fall.

Miller’s expansive congressional career has been marked by a tenacious pursuit of a quality education for children from all backgrounds and economic opportunity for the working poor and middle class. He has served as chairman of three committees: the Select Committee on Children, Youth and Families (1983-1992), the Committee on Natural Resources (1992-1994), the Committee on Education and Labor (2007-2010), and is the co-chair of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, a leadership position. He has used each of these positions to advance his policy priorities and highlight inequities in the federal budget.
