Senator Lamar Alexander on Tuesday released the following statement after the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works approved John Ryder to serve on the Tennessee Valley Authority board of directors:
“John is a good man and is the right person to help keep TVA on a good path.
Over the last few years, TVA’s leadership has made sound decisions to benefit ratepayers in the Tennessee Valley region, and I’m convinced John will make an excellent addition to the TVA Board. I hope his nomination will be quickly considered by the full Senate so he can be confirmed soon.”
Senator Alexander introduced Mr. Ryder at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on March 20.
