PHOENIX (AP) - Two newly elected members of the Arizona Corporation Commission are set to take their oaths of office.

Former House Speaker Andy Tobin won a full term on the board in November’s election and retired Judge Boyd Dunn also won a nod from voters.

Boyd is replacing commissioner Bob Stump, who was forced by term limits to leave the commission that regulates utilities. Tobin was appointed to a seat on the five-member commission by Gov. Doug Ducey early last year. He replaced Commissioner Susan Bitter Smith, who stepped down as the state Supreme Court was considering removing her because of a conflict of interest.

Dunn and Tobin are both Republicans and will formally take office after a ceremony Tuesday morning.

The commission will also vote Tuesday to name a new chairman.
