FERC’s Marc Spitzer to Leave U.S. Regulatory Agency on Dec. 14

December 12, 2011

Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission member Marc Spitzer will leave the agency Dec. 14, he said in a statement.

“I am grateful for the dedication and hard work of the employees of this agency to ensure a reliable supply of energy to the people of our nation at just and reasonable rates,” he said.

Spitzer, 54, a former chairman of the Arizona Corporation Commission, was appointed to the U.S. agency by President George W. Bush in 2006. His five-year term expired on June 30.

Spitzer’s departure leaves the commission with four commissioners. The agency on Nov. 30 held a conference to consider the effects of pending Environmental Protection Agency rules on the U.S. power-grid.
