Topeka – Kansas Governor Sam Brownback announced today the nomination of Senator Jay Emler to the Kansas Corporation Commission.

Emler has represented Senate District 35, which includes Chase, Ellsworth, Marion, McPherson and Morris Counties and portions of Rice and Dickinson counties, since 2001. He served as Majority Leader from January 2011 to January 2013 and is an active member of several committees including the Senate Utilities Committee and the Joint Committee on Kansas Security.

“Jay’s leadership in the Senate, his experience working with committees and commissions and his commitment to the people of this State make him a strong addition to the KCC,” said Governor Brownback. “I appreciate his willingness to continue to serve Kansas in this new role.

Emler was admitted to the Kansas Bar in 1977 and has extensive experience in telecommunications and business law. He has a farm near Lindsborg and is an active member of his community.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to continue serving the people of Kansas,” Emler said. “The KCC plays an important role in protecting the public interest and implementing state policy.”
