CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - A U.S. Senate panel has approved President Barack Obama's four appointees to the Tennessee Valley Authority board, putting them in line for a confirmation vote by the full Senate.

The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved the nominees to the nine-member board Thursday.

They are former TVA board chairman William B. Sansom of Knoxville, Georgia Tech professor Marilyn A. Brown, Barbara S. Haskew and Neil G. McBride.
