Since February 3, 2017, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)--one of the essential pieces of our nation’s energy puzzle-- has been hobbled, and the time is now to get it back working again. On that day, Commissioner Norman Bay departed, leaving FERC unable to carry out many of its statutory duties.  With just two commissioners, FERC was left for the first time in its history without an operational quorum.


“Infrastructure Week” is a series of events this week put together by a coalition, including industry and labor, focused on raising awareness about the need to build better infrastructure for our country. At the U.S. Chamber, we are glad to be a part of the effort.  We know that safe, reliable infrastructure of all kinds is needed to ensure economic growth.

A group calling itself Corporate Accountability International is waging a campaign to evict observers like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Their sin? Looking out for their members.

CAI is out with a hit piece taking to task the Chamber, National Mining Association, Business Roundtable, and other organizations because . . . well, because they have different views from CAI, or they don’t express similar views with sufficient ardor.


In 2016, two very different visions for U.S. energy policy were presented - one that would limit energy production, and one that would expand it. the U.S. Chamber's Institute for 21st Century Energy launched the Energy Accountability Series to take a closer look at these proposals. Now that we've reached 100 days of the Trump Administration, we're taking a look back and asking "what if" things had turned out differently.
