The United States Senate this evening confirmed the nominations of Mark Christie and Allison Clements to join the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, bringing the Commission to its full, five-member complement of Commissioners for the first time in nearly two years. Tonight’s confirmation came on a voice vote.
Christie, Chairman of the Virginia State Corporation Commission, was confirmed to a term that ends in 2025. Clements, a policy consultant for The Energy Foundation, was confirmed to a term that ends in 2024. FERC Commissioners serve five-year, staggered terms.
“I am delighted that our two new colleagues have been confirmed and I look forward to working with them,” FERC Chairman James Danly said.
