INGAA Urges Swift Action on FERC Nominees

WASHINGTON, District of Columbia, June 4, 2024 – Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) President & CEO Amy Andryszak today released the following statement at the conclusion of the Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources Business Meeting:

“We appreciate the work done by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources to thoroughly vet and vote to advance David Rosner, Lindsay See, and Judy Chang as nominees to serve as members of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)

“As an independent agency, FERC plays a critical role in ensuring our nation has the needed energy infrastructure to provide Americans with secure, reliable, and affordable access to natural gas, electricity, and other transportation fuels.

“Currently, FERC is operating with three commissioners, the minimum to sustain a quorum necessary to function as intended. With a pending vacancy in a couple of weeks, the agency could lose quorum, which would eliminate the Commission’s ability to approve construction of critical energy infrastructure projects, including natural gas pipelines and storage facilities.

“INGAA urges the Senate to act swiftly to avoid this loss of quorum by scheduling votes to confirm the nominations of Rosner, See, and Chang with bipartisan support.”


INGAA represents the U.S. natural gas pipeline industry. INGAA’s members deliver clean, abundant, affordable natural gas throughout North America and operate approximately 200,000 miles of pipelines that serve as an indispensable link between natural gas producers and consumers.
