Senate approves FERC nominees; agency regains quorum
The Senate has confirmed President Donald Trump's nominees to fill two of the four open seats on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, producing a quorum for the first time since February for the independent agency that oversees the high power electric grid, natural gas pipelines and hydroelectric dam licensing. FERC can now tackle a number of significant policy challenges in earnest. They include continuing to facilitate the integration of growing levels of cost-effective clean energy into the grid and reforming FERC's natural gas pipeline approval process.
