SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has become the new head of a national state governors group.

Herbert, a Republican, took over as chairman of the bipartisan National Governors Association on Saturday at the close of the organization’s annual summer meeting in West Virginia.

He replaces Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado. The chair position rotates annually between the two major political parties.

Herbert’s elevation to chairman of the NGA follows his yearlong term as vice chairman of the association.

The NGA develops policies and lobbies on behalf of 55 governors of U.S. states, territories and commonwealths.
