This morning the Oversight Committee heard emotional testimony from Miah Cerrillo, a fourth-grade student at Robb Elementary School, during a hearing on the urgent need to address the gun violence epidemic.


Ahead of Miah’s video testimony, Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney provided the following statement:

“The Committee has been in close contact with Miah, her family, and her pediatrician and has been prioritizing her safety and comfort first and foremost.  Her decision to record her story and share it with the American people is courageous – and I hope all Members open their hearts and minds to what she has to say.  Miah, her family, and her pediatrician have made the decision to have her not appear in person, and she will be represented by her father who will introduce her recorded testimony.”
