The Senate on Nov. 16 confirmed the nomination of Willie Phillips, Jr. to be a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a term expiring June 30, 2026.

Phillips, a Democrat, is currently Chairman of the Public Service Commission (PSC) of the District of Columbia.

Once he is sworn in, Phillips will return FERC to its full complement of five commissioners after the departure of Commissioner Neil Chatterjee on August 30, 2021. 

He would also give Democrats a 3-2 majority on the Commission.
