The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that TVA directors voted Friday to allow the agencys 10,900 employees to share in some of those record earnings. The directors approved payments of $113 million, or an average year-end bonus of $10,367 per employee. The board was even more generous to its top five executives. TVA CEO Bill Johnson was paid a compensation package in fiscal 2015 worth more than $6.4 million. Four other top TVA executives were each paid more than $2 million in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30.
