Acting FERC Chair Nominated for New Term
Obama named LaFleur acting chairman in November after Jon Wellinghoff left the commission after seven years. LaFleur was one of his possible successors, but in January Obama instead nominated Norman Bay, current director of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Office of Enforcement to the commission and to be designated chairman upon appointment by the Senate. However, the Senate has yet to confirm.
LaFleur was nominated to FERC by Obama and confirmed by the Senate in 2010. Her term ends next month. She was the executive vice president and acting CEO of National Grid USA when first nominated.
