JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley wants President Joe Biden to appoint at least two Mississippians to the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Board of Directors.

TVA, which is a major energy provider throughout the South, is governed by a nine-member Board.

The U.S. president nominates members and the Senate confirms the appointments.

Each member serves a five-year term.

Currently, the Board consists of one member from Georgia and four from Tennessee.

TVA’s service area includes Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia and Kentucky.

“It’s only right and just that Mississippi be adequately and proportionally represented on the TVA Board of Directors given our state being the second largest territory in the TVA region," Presley stated. "President Biden should use this opportunity to give Mississippians a voice on this board."
