• John Mica out as transportation chairman


    WINTER PARK, Fla. - U.S. Rep. John Mica, of Winter Park, has lost some political clout.

    Mica no longer chairs the House Transportation Committee.

    Chairmen serve for up to six years, unless they get a waiver from the House speaker. Mica didn't receive a waiver.

    During his time as committee chairman, Mica helped bring in $3 million to central Florida to help fund the SunRail project.
