Personal Commentary: Several years ago your publisher had the honor to serve as vice chairman of the NARUC (National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners) Gas Committee.  Also serving on the committee was Arkansas regulatory commissioner, Colette Honorable.  Colette has served the FERC, as Senator Murkowski notes below, with distinction.  She has also been a highly accomplished and congenial colleague and friend.  We join Senator Murkowski in wishing Colette well as she steps down from her duties as FERC commissioner.  -dh

Today, Senator Lisa Murkowski said that, “Commissioner Honorable has served with distinction.   …   Although I understand and respect Commissioner Honorable’s decision.., her departure again underscores the urgent need to re-establish a quorum at FERC.
