She serves as chairwoman of the Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee and as a member of the Senate Education, State Affairs, and Business and Commerce committees. From 2003 to 2011, she served as chairwoman of the Senate Democratic Caucus, and she was unanimously elected by her colleagues to serve as president pro tempore of the Texas Senate's 83rd legislative session.
