Representative Elijah Cummings has passed away at the age of 68.
Mr. Cummings was a Democrat and served in the U. S. House Of Representatives from 1996 until his death. He chaired the Committee on Oversight and Reform, a position he assumed in January 2019. Prior to his service in the U.S. House, he was a member of the Maryland House of Delegates from 1983 to 1996.
Mr. Cummings is survived by his wife Maya Rockeymoore Cummings and his daughter Jennifer J. Cummings.
My heart goes out to the Cummings family and their friends during this difficult time.
