SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A prestigious nonprofit research and education center in Santa Fe has tapped former U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman to serve as its newest trustee.

The Santa Fe Institute announced Wednesday that Bingaman has been elected to a three-year appointment on the Board of Trustees. The board has fiduciary responsibility for the institute and oversees its operation through biannual meetings and committees that offer advice and support to the institute's leadership.

Bingaman's tenure in the Senate spanned three decades, making him one of New Mexico's longest serving senators. He announced in 2011 that he would not seek re-election. From 1979 to 1983, he was New Mexico's attorney general.

Bingaman was also recently appointed as a fellow at the Stanford law school's Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance.
