Sen. Bob Odell, R-Lempster, was unanimously elected last week as Senate President Pro Tempore, one of four official positions established by state Senate rules. As President Pro Tempore Odell presides over the senate in the absence of Senate President Peter Bragdon, or when Bragdon advocates for a certain position during a floor debate. Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Morse, R-Salem, nominated Odell to the position with the nomination seconded by Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, D-Manchester.
During last Wednesday’s Senate Organization Day, Odell presided over the opening of the senate session and the re-election of Bragdon as senate president. “Senator Odell has served his district and the State of New Hampshire with distinction during his six terms in the Senate,’ said
President Bragdon, “He is known as a lawmaker who is willing to reach across the aisle to move the state forward so it is an honor to support him for the position of President Pro Tempore”
