TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback wants the state's interim securities commissioner to remain in the job.

Brownback announced the promotion of Joshua Ney to commissioner on Tuesday. Ney has served on an interim basis since commissioner Aaron Jack resigned in February.

The appointment requires state Senate confirmation.

Ney joined the securities commissioner's office in 2011 as a special assistant attorney general and an attorney handling policy issues. He also has served on the Kansas Human Rights Commission and as a prosecutor in Jefferson County.

The Senate expects to consider Ney's appointment during a special session beginning Sept. 3.

Brownback called the session to rewrite a law allowing judges to sentence convicted murderers to serve at least 50 years in prison after a U.S. Supreme Court decision raised questions about its constitutionality.
