Posted on November 14, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C., November 14, 2018 – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Johnson announced his retirement:

“Those of us in the Tennessee Valley owe a big thank you to Bill Johnson – he and the board of directors have provided sound management and set TVA in the right direction for the future. Electric power is reliable, rates are competitive, the debt is smaller and the air is cleaner thanks to the leadership of Bill Johnson and TVA’s board. Having TVA in such good shape makes it much easier to grow and recruit more good-paying jobs in our region.”
