"General Renkes also served as the Majority Staff Director of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources from 1995 - 1998. Before leading the Committee staff, General Renkes worked as Chief of Staff and Chief Counsel to U.S. Senator Frank Murkowski (R-AK) directing his Washington, D.C. and State of Alaska staff. During his nearly twelve years working in the U.S. Senate, General Renkes was responsible for major and diverse legislative efforts including the restructuring of the U.S. electric utility industry, the reformation of U.S. high level nuclear waste policies, U.S. Japan and U.S. China Nuclear Agreements, the 1992 Energy Policy Act, privatization of the United States Uranium Enrichment Corporation, oversight of U.S. Department of Energy nuclear clean-up efforts, amendments to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, Joint Federal-State Alaska Native Commission, Alaska Native Languages Preservation Act, oil and gas development on the Arctic Coastal Plain, national oil spill prevention legislation (OPA 90), the reform of management in the Tongass National Forest, deep water Gulf of Mexico oil and gas development, export of Alaska North Slope oil, reform of U.S. mining laws, and the largest National Parks bill to be enacted by Congress.

General Renkes also coordinated the 1992 and 1998 Alaska political campaigns to re-elect Senator Frank Murkowski to his third and fourth terms in the U.S. Senate and the Murkowski 2002 Alaska gubernatorial campaign. General Renkes worked as staff to the 1996 Republican National Convention Platform Committee and drafted the section of the Republican Platform addressing energy and environment issues. More recently, he assisted the 2000 Republican National Convention Platform Committee on energy policy issues and was named to the Bush/Cheney Transition Advisory Committees for the Department of Energy and the Department of the Interior.

General Renkes worked in Anchorage, Alaska during law school and moved to Palmer, Alaska to serve as a law clerk and magistrate for the Alaska Court System after graduation in 1986. He has been licensed to practice law in Alaska since 1987. During law school and after in his professional career, he has focused on Alaska energy, land and Native law and at one time regularly contributed articles to the Tundra Times concerning legal issues affecting Alaska Native people.
