Today, January 9, 2023, the 74th General Assembly of Colorado convened for the first regular legislative session. This session brings many new faces to both chambers — and in leadership — as a result of 2021 redistricting and the November 2022 election. Of the 100 lawmakers in the Colorado General Assembly, 43 were new to their chamber when they were sworn in today, including 32 who have never served in the legislature. Women will make up fifty percent of the General Assembly this legislative session, with 50 of the 100 members.
