John Mica to meet with Speaker John Boehner about possible T&I chairmanship term limit waiver

in Uncategorized by

House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman John Mica will meet with Speaker John Boehner this week to discuss a possible term limit waiver, according to a Mica spokesman.

Rep. Bill Shuster officially put his hat in the ring this week, but Mica will have to be granted that waiver to spark a legitimate race for chairman between the two lawmakers. Mica’s election opponent Jason Kendall offered his own take via Facebook, writing of the situation and linking to a news report about Shuster’s bid: ‘If you only knew how many voters told me that they were going to vote for Mica because he was head of the transportation panel.”

Regardless of whether Mica is granted a waiver, he says he’s staying put on the T & I committee.  “I’m not moving from transportation, even if I took another slot.”
