Fun Fact: August 11th, 2017 "Elmo Testifies Before Congress"

The April, 23th 2002 Education Appropriations Subcommittee hearing was brought to you by the Letter "E" when the only non-human (muppet) ever in the history of the United States Congress took the stand. Elmo and his muppeteer defended funding to music programs in public schools. 

Elmo hoped: " when Elmo goes to school, there will be the instruments to play"

A copy of Elmo's Testimony Transcript is available through the Congressional Archives
