President Donald Trump nominated Bernard McNamee, currently director of the policy officer at the Department of Energy, to fill a vacancy at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Wednesday. The nomination is subject to Senate approval.
If he is confirmed, McNamee will complete the remainder of a 5-year term slated to end June 30, 2020, according to Oil and Gas Journal.
At DOE, McNamee formerly served as deputy general counsel for energy policy, as well as practicing energy law at McGuire Woods LLP in Richmond, Virginia.
McNamee was legal counsel to former Virginia Gov. George Allen, a Republican, from 1995 to 1998.
