Parole board appointment

Fowler was appointed to the state parole board by Gov. Jay Nixon (D) on December 13, 2013, causing him to resign his seat in the state house. While Fowler has taken his new position, as of January 10, 2014, the appointment is still subject to the confirmation of the Gubernatorial Appointments Committee of the Missouri State Senate. Republicans in the Senate have vowed to block Fowler because of his vote against a decrease in the state income tax. Committee member Brad Lager (R) commented that the appointment appeared to be a "political payoff."[5][6]
