Washington DC: As the ranking member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in the US House of Representatives,
Congressman John Mica (R-FL) has a great deal of influence in legislation in the trucking industry. He is serving his eighth term
representing Florida's 7th District (The Seventh Congressional District of Florida). As a nationally recognized leader in transportation issues, Rep. Mica has worked diligently to lead efforts to improve our nation's infrastructure.

Recently Congressman Mica met with members of Women In Trucking Association (www.WomenInTrucking.org) when they visited his office in Washington DC. Ellen Voie, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, along with Membership Director, Char Pingel and members Dick Pingel and Mary Jicinsky, discussed issues relating to transportation with the Congressman. Rep. Mica was already familiar with Women In Trucking, as he had assisted Voie in presenting an award to a woman driver at the Orlando Trucker's Conference in February (OTC :: Home)

"We are so pleased that Representative Mica was available to meet with us and to help us work together to make the trucking industry better for both women and men," said Voie, who is the Manager of Recruiting and Retention Programs for Schneider National, Inc. The mission of the newly formed non-profit association is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women in trucking. Voie added, "Our visit with Rep. Mica will allow us to build a relationship with one of the leaders in transportation in our government."
