John Mica may be headed for the Oversight Committee.

He didn't make the transportation committee, which is his forte, so the next possibility is Oversight.

Mica is hitting the road (as transportation chair)

WASHINGTON — Top House Republicans have made their picks for chairmen in the next Congress and it looks like U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Winter Park, is out.

Mica, headed into his 11th term, currently heads the House transportation chair but is not allowed to continue in that role next session due to “term limits” adopted by Republicans nearly two decades ago. Mica had joined in efforts to change that rule, but was unsuccessful and U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Penn., now will take over, according to a list of chairmen released today by House Speaker John Boehner.

Despite the setback, Mica said he hoped to remain on the transportation committee under Shuster, calling the incoming chairman one of this “top lieutenants.”

“I will continue to help shape national transportation policy,” said Mica, who added that he was hopeful he could snag the chairmanship of a subcommittee on either transportation or oversight.

3. I saw the transition.

When he first started, he actually responded with handwritten notes. But, what did it matter? He was, afterall, a Republican.
