LaFleur To Leave FERC
February 05, 2019
Cheryl LaFleur announced she will not seek a third term on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and will leave FERC later this year. She is currently the longest-serving member of the commission and the only one with utility experience having served as acting CEO of National Grid.
LaFleur’s departure will leave FERC with only three sitting regulators — Democratic Commissioner Rich Glick and two Republicans, Chairman Neil Chatterjee and Commissioner Bernard McNamee. No one political party can hold more than three seats on the five-member FERC.
