Miley Elevated to House Judiciary Chair

House Judiciary Vice Chairman Tim Miley, D-Harrison, will now take over that committee, The Associated Press reports.

House Speaker Rick Thompson, D-Wayne, promoted the 43-year-old lawyer on Tuesday. Thompson also chose multi-term Delegate Mark Hunt, D-Kanawha and a lawyer, as vice chair.

Miley succeeds Carrie Webster, who stepped down Friday after Gov. Joe Manchin appointed her to the Kanawha Circuit bench to replace newly minted U.S. District Court Judge Irene Berger. AP reported earlier on the Webster pick.
