Several leadership appointments other than those highlighted in earlier reports here were made by the respective caucuses at the General Assembly in the several month period preceding the opening of the session.

These include:

Sen. Abel J. Tapia (D-Pueblo) - president pro tempore of Senate
Sen. Suzanne Williams (D-Aurora) - Senate majority caucus assistant chair
Rep. Andy Kerr (D-Lakewood) - House majority whip

Sen. Tapia becomes the first hispanic member of the Senate to hold the post of president pro tempore in more than a century.
