HARTFORD, Conn. – The good news keeps coming for Bruce Morris.

The fifth-term Norwalk state representative from the 140th Legislative District, who was appointed as a House deputy speaker earlier this week, also will lead the Black and Latino Caucus of the Connecticut General Assembly.

The group is made up of members from the House of Representatives and Senate.

“The Black and Latino Caucus plays a very important role in shaping major policy initiatives, including education reform, and I am honored that my colleagues have chosen me to chair the caucus,” Morris said. “We have a significant number of experienced lawmakers, and our caucus takes its job seriously as we advocate for all people of Connecticut.”

Morris will lead the caucus leadership team as chairman, and Rep. Hilda Santiago (D-Meriden), assistant majority leader in the House, will serve as the caucus vice chairwoman. Rep. Minnie Gonzalez (D-Hartford) will act as treasurer, and Rep. Matthew Lesser (D-Middletown) is secretary.
