SRTC Transportation Manager Glenn Miles yesterday played chaffeur to a high-ranking member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in town to check out the North Spokane Corridor and some other big transportation projects in the area.

Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., said the federal government should provide more money to help build the NSC and called the federal contribution amount, “a little embarrassing.”

Mica is the ranking Republican on the transportation committee, which expects to develop a five-year plan for roads, bridges and other infrastructure next year.

Here’s the Spokesman’s writeup of Mica’s visit.
