Gov. Mike Beebe has named his chief deputy, Lamar Davis, to the seat on the Arkansas Public Service Commission vacated by Chair Colette Honorable, who's joined the Federal Energy RegulatoryCommission. He'll serve through Jan. 14, 2017.

Beebe did not name Davis chair of the commission, though he could have. His news release said he'd leave that designation to Asa Hutchinson, who'll have a vacancy on the PSC to fill three days after he's sworn in as governor on Jan. 12

Davis, 43, has been chief deputy to Beebe for eight years. Before that, he was a consumer protection attorney when Beebe was attorney general.

Commissioners make about $122,000 a year. Commissioner Olan W. Reeves' term expires Jan. 15.
