Runyan Co-Chairs New Children’s Safety Panel

They’re parents, so they understand child safety concerns. And they’re members of Congress, so they’re in a unique position to do something about it.

A bipartisan group of House members including shore Representative Jon Runyan (R-NJ) have organized to refine, resolve and promote child safety matters. They’re calling the Kids’ Safety Caucus unprecedented in Congressional history.

In addition to Runyan, the coalition co-chairs are Representatives Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Grace Meng (D-NY) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND). All told, they have 13 children and one grandchild.

The group will conduct forums for members of Congress and their staffs, collect and distribute data and research, and provide safety-related information and recommendations that officials can take to their home districts.

Runyan says that as a father of three, he relishes the chance to be a founding member. “Today, preventable injury remains the leading cause of death for children in the United States,” he said in a prepared statement. “As parents and policy makers, we must focus on new ways to help protect the safety of our children.”
