Homeland Security Chief Napolitano to Resign

On July 12, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced she will be stepping down as head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to become president of the University of California system.

Napolitano has served more than four years at DHS overseeing the federal response to Hurricane Sandy and other national security challenges. During her tenure, the association educated Napolitano on the urgent need to finalize repair station security rules in order to end the ban on FAA certification of new foreign repair stations.

Given the battle waging in the Senate over presidential nominations, her successor will likely face a contentious conformation process. Stay tuned to ARSA as the story develops.
