BY U.S. SENATOR MARK PRYOR –
U.S. Senator Mark Pryor released the following statement regarding the nomination of Colette Honorable, Chairman of the Arkansas Public Service Commission, to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
There is no one more qualified for this position than Colette Honorable, and I strongly support her nomination. Colette is a long-time advocate for clean energy and an avid supporter of consumer protection. When I served as Arkansas’s Attorney General, I brought her on as a leading assistant attorney general because of her strong commitment to protecting Arkansans. She has built on this experience with notable leadership at the Arkansas Public Service Commission, National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, and National Petroleum Council. As a FERC Commissioner, these qualities will serve our nation well as demand for efficient, reliable and affordable energy services continues to rise.
