Bode quoted in "What Neil Gorsuch, Trump's Supreme Court nominee, could mean for energy policy"

Utility Dive

Denise Bode was featured in Utility Dive's article, "What Neil Gorsuch, Trump's Supreme Court nominee, could mean for energy policy" on February 14, 2017.

Denise Bode, a partner Michael Best Strategies and previously CEO of the American Wind Energy Association, notes that a lack of Gorsuch writings on energy issues shouldn't be construed as unfamiliarity with the issues. The 10th Circuit operates in Oklahoma, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah: states known for production of fossil fuels as well as renewable energy.

"Usually the federal judiciary in our neck of the woods has had opportunities to know a lot about the energy space," said Bode, also a former regulator on the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. "The 10th Circuit is in one of the big areas where we have a significant amount of oil, natural gas and renewables, and the Southwest Power Pool, ERCOT and other RTOs and reliability organizations do business in that area."
