MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Law Enforcement Secretary Stan Stabler is stepping down as the state’s new governor readies her cabinet.

Stabler told the Associated Press that he submitted retirement papers Wednesday morning after 32 years of service. Stabler had served as law enforcement secretary under Gov. Robert Bentley, who resigned Monday.

Gov. Kay Ivey on Wednesday named Hal Taylor as acting secretary. Taylor most recently served as the deputy chief of staff for the State Bureau of Investigations and chief of staff for the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

Ivey called Taylor “a man of the utmost integrity who I trust during this time of transition.” She will conduct a search for a permanent secretary.

Ivey asked all of Bentley’s cabinet members to submit resignations as she fills positions.
