Sen. Cruz: I Have Every Confidence Bernie McNamee Will Make an Exceptional Commissioner at FERC

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement after voting in favor of the nomination of Bernie McNamee to be a Commissioner on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

'Having worked with Bernie, I know firsthand he is both a well-qualified and hardworking public servant,' Sen. Cruz said. 'He cares deeply about implementing policy that will benefit the American people, and understands the importance of competition in lowering prices and benefiting consumers. I have every confidence he will make an exceptional commissioner at FERC.'

In November, Sen. Cruz introduced McNamee at the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources' hearing to consider various nominations.
