Dear Leaders Schumer & McConnell:

The undersigned organizations represent a broad constituency of industries, companies, NGOs, and labor unions who support and depend on timely regulatory decisions regarding energy infrastructure and markets.

We ask that you bring Willie Phillips’ nomination to serve on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for consideration before the full Senate as soon as possible to fill the current vacancy on the Commission. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee recently favorably reported Mr. Phillips’ nomination with bipartisan support.

FERC plays a critical role ensuring that Americans have access to reliable and affordable energy. The Commission oversees transmission service, power markets, and certain infrastructure projects. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of affordable and reliable energy. Our energy system is playing an essential role supporting America’s economic growth and accomplishing our climate goals.
