TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback has appointed former Republican Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler to fill a vacancy on the Kansas Corporation Commission.

The appointment was announced Wednesday, less than a week before the start of the 2014 legislative session.

Emler, if confirmed by the Senate, would resign his seat and serve a four-year term on the KCC. He will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Mark Sievers, who announced he was leaving the KCC in December.

Emler has been in the Senate since 2001, representing Chase, Ellsworth, Marion, McPherson and Morris counties. He serves on the Senate Utilities Committee and the Joint Committee on Kansas Security.

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