TVA refused to respond to a News Sentinel FOI request regarding executive salaries, and now the KNS is saying they will probably have to sue.
TVA has a long history of being at times a private corporation, i.e. when they want to pay executives more than federal employees are allowed to make under the law, and a government agency, i.e. when they want to declare themselves immune from lawsuits.
In this case they are a hybrid, saying the information would put the government at a competitive disadvantage plus it's an invasion of privacy. Which is baloney. The real problem is they don't want you to know how much they were paid to preside over one of the largest environmental disasters in U.S. history.
Here's another article about it.
