Rep. George Miller, Leading Democratic Voice On Education, Set To Retire

Rep. George Miller’s decision to retire after 40 years in Congress, coming after the announced retirement of Sen. Tom Harkin (Iowa), means Democrats will lose their two strongest congressional leaders on education issues at the end of the year. Miller, 68, the ranking member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, has led the Democrats on issues surrounding K-12 schools and higher education for more than 15 years.
