Citing health reasons, Chairman Kevin McIntyre has stepped down as FERC Chairman. McIntyre will remain at FERC as a Commissioner.
President Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate Neil Chatterjee, currently FERC Commissioner, to be the Chair of FERC
McIntyre was diagnosed with a brain tumor in the summer of 2017
In a letter to President Trump, McIntyre wrote, "I very recently experienced a more serious health setback, leaving me currently unable to perform the duties of Chairman with the level of focus that the position demands and that FERC and the American people deserve. I therefore propose to step aside from the position of Chairman and its additional duties so that I can commit myself fully to my work as Commissioner, while undergoing the treatment necessary to address my health issues."
