On January 5, 2015, Colette Honorable was sworn in as a FERC Commissioner.  Commissioner Honorable’s nomination was approved by the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on December 11, 2014 (see December 15, 2014 edition of the WER), and confirmed by the Senate on December 16, 2014 (see December 22, 2014 edition of the WER).  Commissioner Honorable’s arrival brings the number of FERC Commissioners to five, reflecting a full Commission by filling the vacancy created when former Commissioner John Norris resigned from FERC in August 2014.
