Mica hires former Florida DOT Secretary to work in DC

New House Transportation Chairman John Mica told a high speed rail conference today that's he hired former Florida Transportation Secretary Stephanie Kopelousos to serve as the committee's special counsel.

Mica said she'll work for several months, along with other transportation officials, to root out "unnecessary regulations and red tape."

The transportation committee also oversees infrastructure and Mica tomorrow turns his attention to underused federal buildings. The title of the hearing: "Sitting on Our Assets: Cutting Spending and Private Redevelopment of Underperforming Buildings."

Mica was speaking at the U.S. High Speed Rail Association conference in Washington where Tampa Democrat Rep. Kathy Castor spoke Tuesday.

Since she was a complete failure at rooting out red tape at the Florida DOT, why not send her to DC where that level of incompetence is a core skill for a rapid rise within the federal bureaucracy?

And thus revolutions are born....
