FERC Nominee

President Donald Trump plans to nominate Jones Day attorney Kevin McIntyre as chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Trump also plans to name Neil Chatterjee, senior energy adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as a member of the commission. A new commissioner would restore the quorum that the energy agency needs to make decisions on major energy proposals such as interstate gas pipelines and utility mergers. The commission lost that quorum in February when its former chairman resigned.

Chatterjee is thought to be an excellent selection. He’s helped Senate policymakers coordinate attacks against Obama’s Clean Power Plan. Before joining McConnell’s office, he worked for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.

In private practice, McIntyre represented companies in cases involving energy markets, utility and oil and gas pipeline regulations. His areas of focus include compliance and enforcement, energy trading, competition issues and energy exports.

Stay tuned for confirmation updates.
