President Nominates Bay to Lead FERC
President Obama nominated Norman Bay for commissioner of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
Bay is currently the director of the Office of Enforcement at FERC, a position he has held since 2009. Previously, Bay was a Professor of Law at the University of New Mexico from 2002 to 2009.
If confirmed, Bay would take over for Cheryl LaFleur, who the President named as acting chairman in November 2013.
Last year, the President nominated Ronald Binz for the top job at FERC, but Binz withdrew after his nomination sparked strident opposition from the coal industry and conservatives.
