WASHINGTON, February 5, 2019 – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works approved John Ryder to serve on the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Board of Directors:
“John would be a valuable addition to the TVA Board. President Trump first nominated John a year ago, and he was approved unanimously by this same committee, but Senate Democrats inexcusably held up his confirmation. I hope he will now be confirmed without delay.”
Alexander introduced Ryder at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works last year.
