By delaying his resignation from the Tennessee House's top post until Aug. 2, House Speaker Glen Casada is in a position potentially to impact the governance of a number of state boards and commissions, including the Board of Judicial Conduct, the Times Free Press reports. The speaker is tasked under state law with naming members to 20 new or existing boards, commissions and councils dealing with various aspects of state government. Casada gets four appointments on to the Board of Judicial Conduct, one of which is required to be an attorney and three others who cannot be an attorney or a current or former judge.
