JEFFERSON CITY, Mo (AP).– Two Democratic state senators from Kansas City are leaving to take executive branch jobs.

The Senate on Thursday confirmed the appointments of Sen. Shalonn “Kiki” Curls to the state Labor and Industrial Relations Committee and Sen. Jason Holsman to the Missouri Public Service Commission.

Holsman will join a five-person panel that regulates public utilities.

Curls will join a three-member commission that hears appeals of administrative decisions in workers’ injury and unemployment cases.

Both senators were prohibited by term limits from seeking re-election this year.

Their departure leaves Democrats with only eight senators compared to Republicans’ 24-member majority in the Senate
