From there, he went on to become a mayor, a congressman, and a Cabinet Secretary under two Presidents. As my Secretary of Transportation, Norm performed a crucial role on September 11, 2001, leading the successful effort to bring tens of thousands of passengers aboard commercial aircraft to safe landings. His leadership was vital to strengthening the security of America's seaports and airports. Norm worked hard to help eliminate red tape and liberalize the commercial aviation market.

He also oversaw important changes in fuel economy standards that will save fuel, save lives, and save jobs. Source: HK Law
