TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)- A former Kansas Senate majority leader has taken a seat on the State Commission that regulates utilities.

Jay Emler was sworn in as a member of the Kansas Corporation Commission on Friday, one day after the senate voted 38-0 to confirm his appointment by Governor Sam Brownback.

Emler abstained from that vote, and another senator was absent.
After winning confirmation, Emler resigned from the legislature.

Emler is a former Chairman of the Chamber's Utilities Committee and served as Majority Leader in 2011 and 2012.
