Missouri Revenue Director Nia Ray is stepping down to take the same job in Oregon.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown on Wednesday picked Ray to lead the state's revenue department starting Oct. 10 if she is confirmed by the Oregon Senate in September.
Ray is set to replace Oregon Interim Revenue Director Kris Kautz, who took over when the last director, James Bucholz, retired in December.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon appointed Ray in 2014, but he's barred from seeking re-election and will be out of office in January.
