May 01, 2014

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) released the following statement after the White House announced plans to re-nominate Cheryl LaFleur to serve as a Commissioner on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission:

“This is great news for New England and New Hampshire’s energy future. Cheryl’s knowledge of energy issues, particularly her expertise on the Northeast region, make her a valuable member of the commission. Her continued leadership on FERC will ensure that the Northeast and New Hampshire are well represented on the commission and have a strong voice advocating for our interests.”

Last month, Senator Shaheen led a bipartisan coalition of Northeast senators urging the administration to re-nominate LaFleur.
