Jon Welling­hoff doesn’t yet know when he’ll leave the Fed­er­al En­ergy Reg­u­lat­ory Com­mis­sion — he’s already seen one po­ten­tial re­place­ment’s nom­in­a­tion fall apart — but he’s now fi­nal­ized his plans for post-agency work. Welling­hoff will join Stoel Rives, an en­ergy law firm, re­ports The Hill.
