Sen. Murkowski Announces Departure of Senior Committee Counsel
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today announced the departure of Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Senior Republican Counsel Kaleb Froehlich. Froehlich is leaving the committee on Aug. 5 to pursue a new career opportunity.
“Kaleb has served the committee for nearly six years and has been a trusted advisor and strong advocate for Alaska throughout my time as ranking member,” Murkowski said. “We wish him the best and thank him for his service.”
Born and raised in Juneau, Alaska, Froehlich joined the energy committee after Murkowski became the panel’s ranking member in 2009. His portfolio includes public lands, sportsmen’s issues, endangered species, environmental regulation, and other issues. During his time with the committee, Froehlich worked on multiple bills that became law, including the Omnibus Public Lands Act of 2009, the Helium Stewardship Act of 2013, and numerous Alaska-specific provisions. He was also the guiding force behind Murkowski’s Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014, which had 47 bipartisan cosponsors.
