Congress Not Ready to Expand TVA Board
By Alabama Public Radio
Washington, DC – The Tennessee Valley Authority board was supposed to under a change by May 18th. However, it appears that is not going to happen. T-V-A board chairman Glen McCullough leaves office on that day. That's supposed to be the time that the board changes from three full-time members to nine part-time members. But Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander says the new members are not going to be appointed by then. And, a spokesperson for Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist says President Bush still must announce the nominees. T-V-A spokesperson Gil Francis says the utility can function with the two remaining board members. The Tennessee Valley Authority supplies electricity to part of Alabama and six other Southeastern states.
