Norman Mineta will step down July 7 after serving as DOT Secretary for more than five years, saying, “It is time for me to move on to other challenges.” Mineta was a member of Congress in 1994, and NBAA said the 74-year-old Democrat’s “understanding of general aviation” helped guide the legislative body to pass the General Aviation Revitalization Act.
