DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Republican Rep. Matt Windschitl has been elected speaker pro tem, a top leadership position in the Iowa House.
The 30-year-old Windschitl, of Missouri Valley, replaces retiring Rep. Steve Olson, of DeWitt, who resigned the post Wednesday.
Windschitl was first elected to the House in 2006 and has served as an assistant majority leader for the past five years.
The speaker pro tem is part of the leadership team and presides over the chamber when the house speaker is absent.
Reps. Jarad Klein, a Keota farmer, and Lee Hein, a Montezuma farmer, were elected assistant majority leaders.
