Mica aims for T&I to complete transport bill in May

(The following appeared on The Journal of Commerce website on March 15, 2011.)

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee plans to complete the panel's work on the next long-term transportation legislation in May, an ambitious schedule that could get a long-sought national plan done this year.

Chairman John Mica, R-Fla., told the American Public Transportation Association in Washington, D.C., this schedule would allow time for Congress to hold a conference on differing House and Senate versions, and complete the bill in September.

He said some of the field hearings and town hall-style "listening sessions" his committee has scheduled around the country had been delayed by congressional votes, and are yet to be held.
