Senate Finance to Consider Power Authority Nominee

The nomination of John S. Dyson, as the trustee of the Power Authority of the
State of New York will be considered by the Senate Finance Committee on Monday, after the committee previously put off addressing his nomination last week.
Currently, Dyson is Chairman of Millbrook Capital Management, Inc., which is an investment firm whose activities include managing private equity investments and a stock investment fund. Prior to that he was the chairman of New York City's Council of Economic Advisors. Dyson's experience with the power authority includes a 6 year stint as its Chairman from 1979 to 1985.
Upon announcing Dyson to the post, Cuomo contended that Dyson had deep knowledge of energy issues and understood economic development. He said, "New Yorkers can have confidence that with John on the team, energy delivery and allocation will be in good hands."
Below is a video of Dyson being questioned before the Senate Energy and Telecommunications Committee on Tuesday, which advanced the nomination to the Finance Committee.
