The Senate approved two new members to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Republican Kevin McIntyre and Democrat Richard Glick were confirmed in a unanimous decision Thursday.
This is the first time the five member commission will be at full capacity since 2015.
As members of the FERC, McIntyre and Glick will tackle projects concerning the sale and transportation of energy and natural gas.
In the coming months the commission will work alongside Energy Secretary Rick Perry to create a plan for the future of coal power and nuclear plants.
