Commissioner Neil Chatterjee was sworn in Tuesday to his new position at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Chatterjee was nominated to FERC by President Donald J. Trump in May 2017 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on August 2017. Prior to joining FERC, he was energy policy advisor to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky).

Over the years, Chatterjee has played a role in the passage of energy, highway and agriculture legislation.

Prior to serving McConnell, Chatterjee worked as a principal in government relations for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and as an aide to House Republican Conference Chairwoman Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio). He began his career in Washington, D.C., with the House Committee on Ways and Means.

A native of Lexington, Kentucky, Commissioner Chatterjee is a graduate of St. Lawrence University and the University of Cincinnati, College of Law. Commissioner Chatterjee is married and has three children.

FERC is composed of up to five commissioners who are appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate. Commissioners serve five-year terms, and have an equal vote on regulatory matters.
