President-elect Donald Trump will get an immediate opportunity to reshape the panel that governs Tennessee's power utility. Congress adjourned without confirming President Obama's nominees to the TVA board, and those Democratic appointees probably won't get another chance.

The Tennessee Valley Authority wants the public to weigh in on what should be done with all the coal ash piling up at its largest fossil plant, which is on the Cumberland River. But the federal utility has stated pretty clearly which way it's leaning, which is not in line with what most environmentalists want.

The Tennessee Valley Authority plans to stay the course on reducing its dependence on coal, even under the Trump Administration, which is expected to loosen environmental controls.
