Attorney, State Attorney General and Governor in immediate

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."
