Note to Editors: NYPA 75th Anniversary List of
January 5, 2006
NOTE TO EDITOR:
The New York Power Authority, the nation’s largest
state-owned electric utility, will mark its 75th anniversary in 2006.
Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt signed legislation creating the Power
Authority on April 27, 1931, at his Hyde Park home.
As part of the anniversary observance, we will
issue summaries of major events in Power Authority history for each
month throughout the year. The events will be broken down by week to
facilitate use by newspapers on a continual or intermittent basis.
You can view the January listing on the Power
Authority’s Web site (www.nypa.gov).
Please click “Celebrating Our 75th Anniversary-This Week in NYPA
History” on the home page.
The listings for subsequent months will be posted
at the start of each month throughout 2006.
Please feel free to publish the listings in full or
to select items that you believe would be of particular interest to your
readers. If you wish additional information on individual items, or
assistance in developing them into stories, please contact me by phone
