U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today issued the following statement after the passing of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Commissioner Kevin McIntyre. McIntyre served as chairman of FERC beginning in December 2017, before stepping down to become a commissioner in October 2018.

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of Commissioner McIntyre. As a lawyer, a commissioner, and as FERC’s chairman, he always had the utmost respect for the agency and its mission. He was as warm and engaging as he was knowledgeable about the issues that came before him. My thoughts and prayers are with Kevin’s family and all who knew and loved him.”  

Murkowski is chairman of the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
