EEI President Tom Kuhn Congratulates Newly Confirmed FERC Commissioners
WASHINGTON (November 2, 2017) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement congratulating Kevin McIntyre and Richard Glick on their Senate confirmations for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). 

“EEI thanks the Senate for confirming the final two FERC commissioners and congratulates incoming Chairman McIntyre and Commissioner Glick on their confirmations. Both new commissioners have a deep understanding of the electric power industry and federal energy policy. They also share a strong commitment to public service and will be great additions to the now full Commission. 

“There are many critical issues impacting the electric power industry and its customers. Among them, we need to update the transmission planning process, streamline the siting and permitting process, and develop predictability for the return on equity for transmission projects in order to attract investment, all while ensuring the reliability and resiliency of the energy grid. We look forward to working with incoming Chairman McIntyre and Commissioner Glick to find solutions on these important issues.”
