Five natural gas industry trade associations wrote President Trump on April 15 urging that he “nominate new Commissioners to fill the current vacancy and the forthcoming vacancy on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC” or “Commission”) as soon as possible. A full Commission has five members, but FERC currently has four members and a sitting Commissioner’s term is set to expire this summer which will create a second vacancy.”

The letter further stated that “the lack of a full Commission can delay the approval of pending projects, such as natural gas infrastructure projects, thereby hindering the advancement of critical infrastructure.” The associations’ letter is available here.
