Mineta takes over Commerce

Norman Y. Mineta has been confirmed and sworn in as the Commerce Department's 33rd secretary.

Mineta, a San Jose, Calif., native, will be the first Asian Pacific American to serve in a presidential cabinet. He left a position as a Lockheed Martin Corp. senior vice president to take the Commerce post. Acting Secretary Robert Mallett swore him in last month during a private ceremony.

Mineta said much can be accomplished in the remaining months of the current administration.
