Mishler has been a ranking member of the committee for five years. He also chairs a school funding subcommittee.
Kenley had served as appropriations chairman since 2009 and was re-elected to a new term in November. He abruptly announced his retirement from the Legislature this month. It takes effect at the end of September.
Long says Mishler's work developing the state's school funding formula has demonstrated he has "the acumen, skills and temperament" needed to take on the difficult position.
