Bob Nordhaus Honored at Energy Policy Conference

October 20, 2017

Van Ness Feldman and the CSIS Energy & National Security Program honored Bob Nordhaus at "The Past, Present, and Future of U.S. Energy Policy" conference. The program highlighted the evolution of two policy areas in which Bob made an important mark; vehicle efficiency and electricity regulation.

As a Legislative Counsel in the House of Representatives, Bob Nordhaus drafted the 1975 legislation that established the first fuel economy standards; major sections of the 1977 Clean Air Act Amendments, including Section 111(d); and key provisions in the Federal Power Act. He went on to become the first General Counsel of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in 1977 and later served as General Counsel of the Department of Energy during the Clinton Administration.  Throughout the program, panelists referenced Bob's important work and public service ethos.
