Here’s the release from Senate Republican leadership –

State Senator Robert Stivers (R-Manchester) was elected by his peers today as Senate Majority Floor Leader to fill the position left open by Senator Dan Kelly’s resignation. The term runs until the 2011 Session. The Majority Floor Leader is one of five Republican leadership positions in the Kentucky State Senate and acts on behalf of his party during the proceedings on the Senate floor. The Majority Floor Leader helps guide bills through the legislative process on the Senate floor.

“I thank the Republican Caucus for their support,” Stivers said, “I look forward to working with all the members of the State Senate on behalf of all Kentuckians.”

Senator Robert Stivers has served in the Kentucky Senate since 1997. As a member of Senate Leadership, he will serve on the Legislative Research Commission. He is also the chairman of the Judiciary Committee and serves on the Appropriations and Revenue Committee and Licensing, Occupations, and Administrative Regulations. Senator Stivers represents the 25th District of Magoffin, Morgan, Wolfe, Lee, Owsley, Clay, and Knox counties.

Kelly, a Springfield Republican, resigned his leadership post two weeks ago in preparation for seeking judicial appointment. News about whether Kelly is appointed judge should come today.
