On July 13, 2017, President Donald Trump announced his intention to nominate Kevin McIntyre of Virginia to serve as a FERC Commissioner for the term expiring June 30, 2018, and an additional term expiring June 30, 2023. President Trump announced further that upon confirmation by the United States Senate, Mr. McIntyre will be designated Chairman of FERC. According to the White House press release announcing the intended nomination, Mr. McIntyre has spent most of his nearly 30-year legal career in private practice.
If the United States Senate eventually confirms Mr. McIntyre and President Trump’s three previously announced FERC nominees – Richard Glick, Neil Chatterjee, and Robert Powelson – FERC will have a full slate of five sitting Commissioners for the first time since November of 2013.
