INGAA Comments on Senate Confirmation of Allison Clements and Mark Christie as FERC Commissioners
Amy Andryszak, president and CEO of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, today issued the following statement on the Senate’s confirmation of Allison Clements and Mark Christie to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC):
“We thank the administration for nominating and the Senate for confirming Allison Clements and Mark Christie to serve as FERC commissioners, and we congratulate Ms. Clements and Mr. Christie on their confirmations. As an independent regulatory agency, FERC plays a critical role in reviewing the energy infrastructure projects that provide Americans with safe and secure access to natural gas, delivering environmental benefits to our nation and affordable, reliable energy to consumers. We are pleased that FERC will now have a full complement of commissioners to undertake its important work on behalf of millions of Americans who depend on natural gas every day.
“INGAA looks forward to continuing its work with FERC and Congress to develop our nation’s energy infrastructure and put the benefits of natural gas to good use.”
