CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) – Within the next five months, President-elect Donald Trump could appoint a majority of the board for
the Tennessee Valley Authority, the nation’s largest government-owned utility. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports three
Democratic members of the board, including Chairman Joe Ritch, are leaving the board Tuesday after the Republican-controlled
Senate failed last year to confirm President Barack Obama’s reappointment of the three directors.
