Mica bill an "Epic Fail"
July 7, 2011 – Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., chairman of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, has just proposed a six-year transportation reauthorization bill that invests a paltry $230 billion to repair and rebuild our highways and bridges, a drop of about 20 percent from the last transportation bill signed by President George W. Bush in 2005. In the vernacular of my teenage daughters, that is an "Epic Fail," and would result in the loss of even more construction jobs in an industry still reeling from the after-effects of Great Wall Street Recession.
