The chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority has expressed confidence in the organization following a proposal in the 2014 Obama budget last week that suggested a possible sale of the public utility.

At a board meeting Thursday, Bill Sansom said the board welcomes a proposed strategic review of the agency and any suggestions for ways to better serve the people in its seven-state region.

Sansom says he believes TVA is a good model and the review will show that. But he also says some areas need improvement and suggested that making those improvements could help TVA in the upcoming review.

The board also approved creating an advisory council on energy resources.
