NATA Congratulates New DHS Secretary

Janet Napolitano Confirmed Tuesday

National Air Transportation Association (NATA) President James K. Coyne congratulated incoming Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano on her confirmation Tuesday by the US Senate. Napolitano is the first woman to serve as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Elected in 2002 and then re-elected in 2006 as Governor of Arizona, Napolitano was nominated by President Obama on December 1, 2008, to serve as secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security after serving on the Obama-Biden Transition Project.

NATA notes Napolitano has an impressive resume, serving as US Attorney, State Attorney General and Governor in immediate succession. 

"I congratulate Secretary Napolitano on being confirmed by the Senate and look forward to working with her on critical issues facing general and commercial aviation, including the Large Aircraft Security Program, the Certified Cargo Screening Program and other aviation security matters," Coyne said.

"NATA’s members play a critical role in this nation’s air transportation system. We welcome the opportunity to work with the new Secretary and her staff in developing security protocol that are appropriate and risk-based while ensuring that the economic impact on the aviation businesses implementing these changes is balanced."
