Dear Majority Leader McConnell and Democratic Leader Schumer:
The undersigned organizations represent a broad constituency of industries, companies, and labor unions who build and provide equipment, materials, supplies, services, and human capital to energy infrastructure projects. Our broad group relies on that infrastructure to produce and deliver the energy that powers America.
We ask you to schedule floor votes as soon as possible to confirm new commissioners to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to fill current vacancies. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee recently cleared both a Republican and a Democratic nominee with bipartisan support, and their nominations now await a vote by the full Senate.
