US President Donald Trump has nominated Indian-American Neil Chatterjee to a key administration position in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The Commission is charged with overseeing America’s power grid and deciding on multi-billion dollar energy projects.
The While House said, Mr Chatterjee will be made a member of FERC for the term expiring 30th June, 2021. The Indian-American, however, needs to be confirmed by the Senate before he can be sworn-in.
Mr Chatterjee has played an integral role in the passage of major energy, highway and farm legislation in the United States.
