Pennsylvania State Senator Jake Corman (R) was tabbed for a significant leadership position in the state senate on Wednesday.

Corman, who won a fifth term representing Pennsylvania’s 34th senatorial district in last week's general election, has now been elected majority leader.

As majority leader, Corman will oversee the senate's legislative agenda and help develop strategies for the Senate Republican Caucus.

According to a news release Corman will have a major role in negotiating legislative issues with the governor's office and the House of Representatives. He'll also be supervising action on the Senate floor.

In a prepared statement Corman says, "As Majority Leader I will continue to promote fiscal responsibility, ensure that government lives within its means, and work to bring consensus on issues that are important to state residents."

Corman's district covers all of Centre County and parts of Huntingdon and Mifflin Counties.

Corman is a Penn State graduate. He's been making headlines recently for his involvement in an on-going lawsuit against the NCAA. The athletic organization is fighting to have the Endowment Act declared unconstitutional. The act requires that the $60 million fine the NCAA imposed on Penn State be spent on child sex abuse programs inside the state of Pennsylvania.
