Coalition Letter Requesting Confirmation of FERC Nominees to Restore Quorum

The undersigned associations urge you to act quickly to restore a quorum at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). FERC has lacked a quorum for more than four months, placing energy infrastructure permitting and approvals on an indefinite hold and creating an unexpected barrier to improving the permitting process for infrastructure projects. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee recently cleared two nominees on strong bipartisan votes; their nominations now await a vote by the full Senate.
