The TVA has been ablaze with discussion as of late concerning President Obama's budget proposal concerning the TVA. Bloomberg on the issue: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-11/obama-mulls-sale-of-tennessee-valley-authority-in-budget-plan.html "President Barack Obama is considering the sale of all or part of the Tennessee Valley Authority (3015A), the largest publicly owned U.S. power company, in a deal that may raise as much as $35 billion as the administration seeks to reduce the national debt."
"A potential sale is part of a “strategic review” of the Knoxville, Tennessee-based nonprofit, which faces increasing capital costs, according to the administration’s fiscal 2014 budget proposal released yesterday. A sale may yield $30 billion to $35 billion in cash and reduced government debt obligations, said Travis Miller, a Chicago-based analyst for Morningstar Inc. (MORN) "
TVA leadership welcomes debt review: http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2013/apr/19/tva-leaders-welcome-debt-review/ "President and CEO Bill Johnson and board Chairman Bill Sansom said they believe TVA is "a good business model" that is funded totally by ratepayers, not taxpayers.
"We'll cooperate and participate, and we're glad to see the review. In the meantime, we've got to focus and direct management's attention on running the place right," Sansom said at a board meeting Thursday in Columbia, Tenn."
