Monday, November 4, 2019 - 4:45pm

Dear Chairman Murkowski and Ranking Member Manchin:

         The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of James P. Danly to be a Member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Katharine MacGregor to be Deputy Secretary of the Interior.

         Mr. Danly has amassed considerable experience serving as the current General Counsel at FERC and previously in private law practice, as well as a law clerk at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  Danly also served as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army, and received a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.  Mr. Danly’s diverse and substantive experience have prepared him to serve as a FERC commissioner.

         Ms. MacGregor’s extensive experience in public service make her an outstanding choice to serve as the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Interior. Ms. MacGregor is an unquestionable expert on federal lands policy having served in a variety of senior roles at the Department after a decade as a Congressional staffer, including at the House Committee on Natural Resources.
