Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being showered with honors from her Democratic colleagues as her longtime reign comes to a close.

The California Democrat was designated “Speaker Emerita” after a unanimous vote by the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee. The title was offered by her hand-picked successor, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, who currently serves as the caucus chairman.

Mrs. Pelosi, who announced her intent to step down from Democratic leadership earlier this month, has received a flurry of well-wishes from her colleagues, as well as proposals to enshrine her legacy in the Capitol.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, California Democrat, introduced a resolution this week that would name the Cannon House Office Building’s large caucus meeting room after Mrs. Pelosi.
