ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Sen. James Robey will serve as Senate majority leader during his final year in the Maryland General Assembly.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. made the announcement Thursday.

Robey has been a member of the Senate since 2007 but is not seeking re-election next year. He previously served as Howard County executive and county police chief.
