JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon has placed a former Democratic lawmaker on a state utility regulation commission after the nomination stalled in the state Senate earlier this year.

Nixon appointed Steve Stoll to the Public Service Commission on Friday. With the legislature adjourned, the interim appointment allows Stoll to serve on the commission. Senators will need to confirm the selection when they return to the state Capitol.

Stoll was first appointed to the commission in December. Nixon withdrew the appointment in February when senators indicated they wanted an additional person to be appointed to the fill a second vacancy on the commission.
