Nominations of Sooners for FERC Fail to Pan Out


Just after former Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton was sworn in as our new president, there was a lot of speculation about some prominent Oklahomans getting nominated to key posts at Capitol Hill. None panned out.

One agency that had been of interest to folks in the energy business was the five-member Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which had four vacancies. Just before the November elections, then-President George Bush had nominated Bill Liedtke of Oklahoma City _ a noted energy adviser to former Gov. Henry Bellmon.

But, of course, a whole new set of names had to be thrown in the hat after the election. And, Liedtke's didn't survive _ not because he's a Republican, either. There were some other Oklahomans rumored to be under consideration by Clinton, though.

The names that fell out of the hat were a mixed bunch _ a woman, who is a Republican; an Independent and two Democrats, both of whom worked closely on Clinton's campaign. The new group met in official capacity for the first time on June 16.

James John Hoecker _ an attorney who served as energy adviser to the Clinton-Gore campaign and also former assistant general counsel and legal adviser to the FERC. He was at the agency from 1984 to 1988, handling gas and oil litigation, and rulemaking and legislative analysis matters. Hoecker is the first former FERC staff member to serve on the panel. After leaving FERC in 1988, Hoecker was of counsel with two Washington, D.C. law firms before his confirmation. He has a bachelor's degree from Northland College in Wisconsin, master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Kentucky and a law degree from the University of Wisconsin. He is a native of Wisconsin. His term expires June 30, 1995. William L. Massey _ a native of Arkansas who was a member of Clinton's presidential transition team for the U. …
