Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., the former chairman of the House transportation committee, said Wednesday that the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce should “seek other opportunities for employment” after advocating for a gas-tax increase to solve the nation’s transportation needs.

Mica said chamber president Tom Donohue had “lost touch with the business people he represents” in advocating for the tax.

“The supposed key private sector business spokesperson has backslided again to a myopic tax and spend agenda,” Mica said in a statement Wednesday. “…[I]t would be my hope that he can seek other opportunities for employment as soon as possible.”

 

Janet Kavinoky, executive director of Transportation Infrastructure for the chamber, responded in a statement to National Journal that, “We don’t make it personal but the realities of our infrastructure challenges have to be addressed, and we will keep offering solutions, even if they are unpopular.”
