LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — President Barack Obama has nominated the chairwoman of the Arkansas Public Service Commission to serve on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The White House announced Thursday its nomination of Colette Honorable as a commissioner on the agency that regulates the transmission of electricity, natural gas and oil.

Honorable has served on the Arkansas Public Service Commission since 2007 when she was appointed by Gov. Mike Beebe. She also served as chief of staff for Beebe when he was the state's attorney general.

Honorable is also president of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners.

The U.S. Senate must confirm the appointment. If approved, Honorable would replace commissioner John Norris, who resigned to take a position with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
