Election needed if senator added to court panel
Gov. Sam Brownback has nominated State Senator Jay Emler to serve on the Kansas Corporation Commission.
Emler’s district includes Tampa, Durham, Lehigh, and Goessel in Marion County.
If the Kansas Senate confirms the appointment, Emler will have to resign his Senate seat. A special election would then be held, and a new Senator would be elected.
