WASHINGTON (December 1, 2020) — In response to the Senate confirmation of Mark Christie and Allison Clements to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners issued the following statement:

“The confirmation of Mark Christie and Allison Clements, which brings the FERC to a full quorum, is excellent news. A full complement of commissioners is essential to adjudicate the myriad issues that are before the agency. We look forward to continuing to engage FERC members on matters that are of importance to state regulators.”

—NARUC President Paul Kjellander of Idaho


In July, NARUC issued a statement praising the nomination of Mark Christie, which reflected the Association’s call for state regulators to be considered as FERC commissioners.
