PHOENIX (AP) - Former Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin has been named to another cabinet-level post in Gov. Doug Ducey’s administration.

Ducey announced Thursday that Tobin will take over the state Department of Insurance. Tobin has been running the Weights and Measures Department since January but that agency is being eliminated because of consolidation.

Tobin has experience in the insurance industry. He owned a local insurance brokerage and then ran an employee benefit company.

Tobin was elected to the House in 2006 and was Speaker from mid-2011 until he left the Legislature at the end of last year. The Republican from Paulden ran for Congress in 2014 in the 1st Congressional District but lost to Democratic incumbent Ann Kirkpatrick.
