State Sen. Tim Cullen is back in the state Senate Democratic caucus three days after leaving it in what he now calls a "little squabble."
Cullen and Democratic Senate Majority Leader Mark Miller announced his return to the caucus Friday.
Cullen announced on Tuesday that he would no longer meet with Democrats, and was contemplating becoming an independent, after he felt snubbed because he didn't get the committee chairmanship he wanted.
Miller created two new special committees on mining and venture capital for Cullen to chair.
Democrats took majority control 17-16 following last month's recall elections in which one Republican incumbent lost. However, November elections will determine which party holds the Senate starting in 2013.
The Senate is not scheduled to be in session the rest of this year.
