Utah Sen. Curt Bramble, R-Provo, was elevated Friday to president-elect of the National Conference of State Legislatures, setting him up to become the president next year.
NCSL is a bipartisan organization that acts as a policy clearinghouse and research center, sharing information with 7,383 state lawmakers nationwide and their 20,000 staff members.
Bramble served as vice president of the organization during the past year. He now succeeds Debbie Smith, a Democrat from Nevada, who becomes the group's president. NCSL alternates leadership between the two parties each year.
