Tennessee AG requests 8 execution dates before June
AP Friday February 16, 2018

Tennessee's attorney general wants the state Supreme Court to set eight execution dates before June 1, saying it's uncertain whether officials can get the lethal injection chemicals after that.
Attorney General Herbert Slatery's court filing Thursday says juries delivered death sentences decades ago, and each man has exhausted the three-tier appeals process.
The state's last execution was in 2009.
Slatery cited "ongoing difficulty" getting lethal injection drugs.
The filing says Tennessee uses a three-drug combination because death-penalty opponents worked with pharmaceutical companies to prevent Tennessee from obtaining the single drug it used, pentobarbital, while unsuccessfully suing over its use.
The filing says defendants want to delay execution to challenge the three-drug mix.
Three others are scheduled for 2018 executions. One has exhausted appeal options. He's scheduled to die Aug. 9.

 


TVA Discusses New Pricing Structure
Friday February 16, 2018

TVA said it is moving to a new pricing system aimed at averting "sticker shock" during periods of extreme heat or cold.
Officials said January 2018 in the Tennessee Valley was brutal. With weather dropping into the teens and twenties, conditions were harsh - for humans and for heaters. As a result, many consumers were surprised with unusually high power bills caused by the unusually low temperatures.
Cass Larson, TVA's vice president of Pricing and Contracts, said TVA is working on a wholesale rate change that will modernize its pricing structure by lowering energy rates and adding a fixed rate charge to access the power grid.
Mr. Larson said he and his team are still working through the details of the rate change in partnership with local power companies, but consumers will have a chance to provide feedback through a public comment period.
