DENVER — Colorado's state Legislature isn't changing hands between parties — but both the House and Senate are electing new bosses Thursday because of term limits.
Republicans have a majority in the Senate, and Democrats control the House. The ruling parties are meeting Thursday morning to elect a new House Speaker and Senate President.
The Senate will be replacing President Bill Cadman of Colorado Springs, and the House needs a replacement for Speaker Dickey Lee Hullinghorst of Boulder. Both are leaving office because of term limits.
