MLGW News Release
 
MLGW delegation goes to Washington
February 25, 2009
(February 25, 2009) - Today, MLGW President Jerry Collins, General Counsel Cheryl Patterson and Controller Dana Jeanes visited the offices of Congressmen Cohen and Tanner. Topics covered included full funding of the federal Liheap program to help low income families pay their utility bills, funding through the economic stimulus package for weatherization funding and funding for smart grid technology.

Also discussed was how to best mitigate the cost of the TVA ash pond cleanup effort so as to not materially impact the rates that TVA charges for electricity. The same topics were covered this afternoon with Congressman Blackburn and her staff. Marsha Blackburn was very gracious to take time out of her busy schedule to meet with us. Later this afternoon meetings will be held with the staffs of Senators Alexander and Corker.
