National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO
Ed Bolen Monday commended President Bush for announcing his
intention to nominate Edmund S. "Kip" Hawley as Assistant Secretary
of Homeland Security (Transportation Security Administration). The
White House announced Hawley's nomination late last week.
"Kip is an organizational expert and an experienced Executive
Branch executive," said Bolen. "He was instrumental in the creation
of the TSA and is well-versed in aviation issues as a result of his
leadership of the FAA's Air Traffic Committee. The President has
made an excellent choice."
