New proposal would redirect TVA funds to counties for economic development

New proposal would redirect TVA funds to counties for economic development
Fulton County Judge/Executive Jim Martin said the requested funds would not be a gift to the recipient counties, but rather an investment in much-needed job creation that has the potential for significant economic returns to the community and the state.
