Former Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson has gotten a new job: chief executive officer of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

The Democrat just left the U.S. Senate after 12 years in office.

The association announced Tuesday that Nelson will represent the group's interests in Washington, D.C., which includes "outreach to federal and international governmental entities." The association noted that Nelson was its executive vice president and chief of staff from 1982 to 1985.

Association members include chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories.

Nelson briefly served Nebraska as director of the Insurance Department, 1975-1976.

He was governor of Nebraska from 1991 until 1999. He began representing Nebraska in the U.S. Senate in 2001.
