Posted on April 16, 2010

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), co-chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Congressional Caucus and member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee which has jurisdiction over TVA, released the following statement today regarding the election of Dennis Bottoroff to be the new chairman of TVA.

“Denny Bottoroff is one of the finest executives in the Mid-South and will be a superior chairman for the Tennessee Valley Authority.  I thank Mike Duncan for his service. His decision to step aside as chairman is appropriate in light of his new responsibilities outside TVA.”
