House of Representatives to hold moment of silence for Oakland fire victims

The U.S. House of Representatives will engage in a short moment of silence on the morning of Dec. 8 to acknowledge those affected by the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland.

Prior to the silence, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who introduced the resolution, will make a speech on the House Floor honoring the victims and thank the first responders to the scene for their service.

California Senators Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer introduced companion legislation to the Senate yesterday.
