LETTER: Hydropower Licensing Authorities


Western Governors sent a letter on July 18, 2016, to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce leadership regarding provisions in Subtitle B: Hydropower Regulatory Modernization of the North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2015. The Governors expressed concerns that this subtitle would designate the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as lead agency for all hydropower licensing authorities and requested that language be removed or amended so that existing state hydropower licensing authorities are not replaced or in any way impeded by FERC jurisdiction. Read, download the Letter
