COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Nineteen people have applied for the open seat on the Ohio commission that regulates utilities, and the appointment will be up to the governor.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1r5QQTX ) a Republican state legislator, a longtime administrative law judge and an attorney who argues cases before the commission are among the applicants.

A nominating commission will review the applications and interview some of the candidates before recommending a list of four finalists to Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik). The governor can then appoint one of the finalists to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio or ask for a new list.

The commission appointments must be confirmed by the state Senate.

The opening was created when Andre Porter, a Republican who was chairman, resigned and left the state for a new job.
