The state Senate late Tuesday night voted 31-2 to confirm Gov. Bob Riley's appointment of Jerome B. Williams, a veterinarian in Birmingham, to the board of trustees of Alabama A&M University near Huntsville.
Riley several months ago appointed Williams to the A&M board.
Williams would have automatically lost his seat if the Senate had not confirmed him before the end of the current special legislative session that Riley started last week, said Sen. Jabo Waggoner, R-Vestavia Hills, chairman of the Senate confirmations committee.
With the Senate's vote, Williams' term on the A&M board ends Jan. 31, 2016.
