Trump plans to nominate DOE official for FERC Commissioner

President Trump on Oct. 3 announced his intent to nominate Bernard McNamee to be a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a term that would expire June 30, 2020. 

McNamee is currently the Executive Director of the Office of Policy for the U.S. Department of Energy. 

McNamee would fill the seat on the Commission vacated by Robert Powelson, a Republican, who left the Commission in August to become President and CEO of the National Association of Water Companies. 

McNamee’s nomination would require confirmation by the Senate.
