NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has been named chairman of the National Governors Association's Health and Human Services Committee.

Haslam was named to the post by Govs. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma and John Hickenlooper of Colorado, the NGA's chair and vice chair.

The NGA's health panel is one of five standing committees. The others are economic development and commerce; education and workforce; homeland security and public safety; and natural resources.

Haslam previously served as vice chairman of the NGA's education panel.

The nonpartisan association was founded in 1908 as a way to represent a collective voice of governors to Washington. Members include the governors of 55 states, territories and commonwealths.

The association's next annual meeting will be in Nashville next year.
