Over in his 16 years serving in the Montana Legislature, Sen. Jon Sesso, D-Butte, has served in Democratic leadership positions in both the House and the Senate.

As a freshman in 2005, Sesso was appointed to the powerful House Appropriations Committee, which set him on the path to becoming the Democrats’ top budget negotiator.
