State Sen. Butch Miller, R-Gainesville, has been nominated to continue to serve in his role as President Pro Tempore of the Georgia Senate.

Miller was nominated by the Georgia Senate Majority Caucus on Tuesday. He was elected to the Georgia Senate in 2010 to represent the 49th District, which covers most of Hall County.

“I am grateful to each of my colleagues for continuing to entrust me with this leadership position,” Miller said in a statement. “I believe that the future for our great state is bright and that by working with our incoming administration and friends in the House, we can continue to make Georgia the best place in the nation for business, economic development and a place for our citizens to call home.”

This is Miller’s second nomination for the position. He was first nominated for the President Pro Tempore role in January. His nomination will be voted on when the Georgia Senate convenes for the 2019 legislative session.

Other North Georgia legislators were also nominated for top positions Tuesday. State Sen. Steve Gooch, R-Dahlonega, was nominated to continue his role as Majority Caucus Whip, and State Sen. John Wilkinson, R-Toccoa, was nominated to continue in the position of Majority Caucus Secretary.
