TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A former senate majority leader has been appointed to fill a vacancy on the Kansas Corporation Commission.

Governor Brownback Wednesday named Jay Emler to the spot left open by Mark Sievers' resignation in December.

Emler is a Republican from Lindsborg; he has represented Senate District 35 since 2001. He served as Majority Leader from 2011 to 2013.

The three-member KCC regulates natural gas, electricity, telephone and transportation operations in Kansas.

Emler's appointment requires confirmation from by the Kansas Senate. If confirmed, Emler will resign his Senate seat.
