The 85th Texas Legislature convened in Austin. Area State Sen. Kel Seliger was elected president pro tempore by his peers. The post is largely honorary, however, it does place him second in line to the governorship. The post makes Sen. Seliger acting governor when Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick are out of the state.
