Workforce: Pension reform slouches along

WASHINGTON, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- The Democratic-led Senate has been sitting on pension reform legislation passed by the Republican-led House last spring, but the Democrats say there is a good reason: the proposed reforms won't effectively protect the average worker.

Wiki

George Miller III (born May 17, 1945) is the U.S. Representative for California's 7th congressional district, serving since 1975. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

The son of liberal State Senator and Democratic Party leader George Miller, Jr., he was born in Richmond, California. He was educated at San Francisco State University and had just graduated from college when he ran unsuccessfully for his late father's State Senate seat in 1968. He then attended the University of California, Davis School of Law (King Hall), and after admission to the university, served as legislative assistant to California Senate majority leader George Moscone before entering the House. From 2007 through 2010, Miller served as chairman of the Education and Labor Committee, formerly known as the Education and the Workforce Committee.

In the House, Miller has been a member of the Natural Resources Committee; he was that Committee's chairman from 1991 to 1994. Miller has supported efforts to preserve public lands such as the 1994 California Desert Protection Act, which among other things created Death Valley National Park and Joshua Tree National Park. In addition, Miller was the chief sponsor of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act of 1992, which mandated that the federal government's Bureau of Reclamation manage the Central Valley Project in order to better protect the fish and wildlife populations of California's Bay-Delta region. Miller lost his chairmanship when Republicans won control of Congress in 1994. He stayed as the committee's Ranking Member until 2000, and remains on the committee. Miller is also a member of the Congressional Wildlife Refuge Caucus.
