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.

Haskew has held various teaching and administrative jobs at Middle Tennessee State University.
