House Republican Floor Leader Jeff Hoover, R-Jamestown, has been appointed to serve on the Governing Board of the Council of State Governments for the 2013-2014 biennium. Rep. Hoover’s appointment to the board is immediate, and his term runs through December 31, 2014.
“I am thankful to the current CSG National Chair, Senator Gary Stevens of Alaska, and the CSG organization for this opportunity to serve on its board,” said Rep. Hoover. “This appointment will also give me the chance to communicate and share ideas with legislators from other states, which in turn will provide valuable insight into dealing with crucial issues to move our Commonwealth forward.”
The Governing Board, composed of the nation’s governors, legislative leaders and members of the judiciary, is CSG’s decision-making body on issues of organizational structure. The Governing Board also may be called upon to consider other matters referred to it by CSG’s Executive Committee. Legislative members of the Governing Board are those occupying the highest ranking positions in their party and chamber.
Founded in 1933 with its national headquarters located in Lexington, Kentucky, The Council of State Governments is our nation’s only organization serving all three branches of state government. CSG is a region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy.
