The Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) has announced that Scott Yager has joined the organization as vice president of environment.
In his role, Yager will be responsible for the association’s advocacy and member services in connection with environmental policies affecting our nation’s interstate natural gas delivery network.
“Scott’s previous experience working for a trade association on environmental policies makes him a wonderful addition to the INGAA team,” said Amy Andryszak, president and CEO of INGAA and the INGAA Foundation. “His extensive legal background and expertise on greenhouse gas emission regulations will be a valuable asset to our organization and our members.”
Previously, Yager worked for seven years at the National Cattleman’s Beef Association (NCBA). He most recently served as NCBA’s chief environmental counsel, representing the cattle industry on myriad environmental issues and policies, including the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, before Congress, the Executive Branch and the courts.
Prior to his time at NCBA, Yager worked for four years at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a law fellow in the Office of Water, where he worked on permitting and regulatory issues. He also served as a law clerk in EPA’s office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance.
“I am excited to join INGAA and serve as Vice President of Environment,” Yager said. “I look forward to utilizing my environmental and regulatory knowledge to promote solutions for issues impacting our nation’s natural gas transmission network. I also look forward to working with policymakers and regulators to help them understand the important work the natural gas pipeline industry has already done and will continue to do to reduce emissions and deliver safe, reliable, and clean energy.”
Yager received his J.D. with a specialization in Environmental Law from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. He also holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Maryland.
