President-elect Donald Trump plans to name  Cheryl LaFleur chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, an agency charged with overseeing the nation's power grid and deciding on multibillion-dollar energy projects, two people familiar with the situation said.

The decision to name LaFleur may be announced during Trump's first days in office, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information isn't public. LaFleur has been a member of the commission since 2010 when she was first nominated by President Barack Obama.
