                       Ia. JURISDICTION
  Colorado Constitution Article XXIX Ethics in Government
permits the Independent Ethics Commission to investigate:

                     Ib. VIOLATION DATE
     Violations occurred May 4th, 2017.
                    II. CONFIDENTIALITY
                  III. AMENDED BACKGROUND

all State executive and

legislative branch elected

officials and employees

; the Commission also has

jurisdiction over local officials and employees, unless a

county or municipality is a home-rule entity that has adopted

charters, ordinances, or resolutions that address the matters

covered by Article XXIX.”1

After conferring with the director of the IEC and
because of the circumstance and time constraints, the
Complainant will make the Complaint immediately open to the
public including the Senators involved.

When the Complainants filed their initial complaint, we were

unaware that there was a third Senator, Senator Ray Scott

that was appointed to the Senate State, Veterans and Military

Affairs [Hereinafter “State Affairs Committee”] on May 4th,

2017 as he was not listed as a committee member on the

Legislature web site as Williams and Smallwood were for a

while on May 4th.. Also, we want to expand the Complaint to

all the following Respondents:

1.Senator Smallwood, On May 4th, he was on two category 1

committees.

2.Senator Williams, On May 4th, she was on two category 1

committees,

3.Senator Grantham, President of the Senate, responsible for

selecting Senate Committee Appointments,

IIIa. COLORADO HOUSE BILL 2017-1303

HB17-1303 is a bill concerning the reset of the Judicial

Performance Commission that started in the House where it

passed and was then put forward to the Senate State Affairs

Committee on May 4th as well as 11 other bills for their

consideration.

The members of the State Affairs Committee were placed at

the beginning of the session as required by the Senate Rules.

Senator Vicki Marble, Chair
Senator Lois Court
Senator Owin Hill
Senator Jerry Sonnenberg
Senator Stephen Fenberg
With Julia Jackson as staff director.

The members of the State Committee as of 8:45am on May 4th

when HB17-1303 was to be considered was as follows:

The evidence of this is that I could not attend the hearing

that was to be held by the State Affairs Committee

immediately after the adjournment of the Senate and I wanted

to get a message to them to vote No on HB17-1303. I looked

up the State Affairs Committee and sent an Email to each

member.

According to the Legislature web site, the members of the

State Committee as of 12pm on May 4th, 2017 changed as

follows:

Senator Ray Scott
Senator Angela Williams [Respondent]
Senator Jim Smallwood [Respondent]
Senator Jerry Sonnenberg
Senator Stephen Fenberg
With Julia Jackson as staff director.

BY RESPONDENTS SENATOR GRANTHAM, GUZMAN AND WILLIAMS.

According to the Legislature Web Page of May 4, 2017 (below), Senator Angela Williams is a member of the Business, Labor, and Technology Committee and should not have been appointed to the State Affairs Committee in violation of Senate Rule 22(l)(2), by Senate minority leader, Respondent Senator Guzman, one hour before a hearing on HB17-1303 and 11 other bills.

          IIId. VIOLATION OF SENATE RULES
 BY RESPONDENTS SENATOR GRANTHAM, HOLBERT, GUZMAN,
              WILLIAMS AND SMALLWOOD.

According to the Legislature Web Page of May 4, 2017 (below), Senator Jim Smallwood is a member of the Business, Labor, and Technology Committee and should not have been appointed to the State Affairs Committee in violation of Senate Rule 22(l)(2), by Senate majority leader, Respondent Senator Holbert, one hour before a hearing on HB17-1303 and 11 other bills.

MAY 4TH, 2017

BOTH COMMITTEES ARE CATEGORY 1 WHICH IS NOT ALLOWED BY SENATE RULE 22(l)(2)

The result of these inappropriate assignments to the State Affairs Committee by Respondents Senators Williams and Smallwood by Respondents Senator Holbert and Guzman are serious violations of Senate Rules and Legislative Ethics guidelines, biasing the due process of 12 bills set for hearing by the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee on May 4th, 2017.

Additionally, I was not able to attend the May 4th hearing and therefore sent an E-mail4 to each of the Senators named as members of the State Affairs committee as of 8:45am on May 4th; which ended up not being the Senators that decided House Bill17-1303 less than 3 hours later.

4 Dear Senators of the State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee:

The State Judicial Performance Commission spent 6 months to get information for the reset of the JPC including a “roadshow” to 8 Colorado cities to get input of persons including litigants, attorneys and district commissioners. Additionally, they spent hours crafting the framework for the reset when/before this bill was introduced.

We attended all but two of those “roadshows” across the state and not one single issue that was brought up was put into this bill. Further, as the largest faction of litigants in the courts today [pro-se litigants comprise 51% of all civil litigants in Colorado courts] we proposed 11 Amendments to the bill; none of which were even considered or given a vote. And the bill is sponsored by 4 attorneys who have a completely different perspective of judges and the legal system than pro-se litigants.

We believe the passage of this bill as it is currently written would be devastating to pro-se litigants; even more than the present statute.

There is still time to write a future bill that addresses the concerns of Colorado citizens [The current statute sunsets in June of 2019 ] and allow their input through stakeholder meetings while the bill is being put together instead of this late bill before you today.

We ask that you vote NO on HB17-1303.

Best,

/s/Peter Coulter

     IIIe. VIOLATION OF COLORADO CONSTITUTION,
ARTICLE 5 BY RESPONDENTS SENATOR GRANTHAM, HOLBERT,
          GUZMAN, WILLIAMS AND SMALLWOOD.

Additionally, pursuant to the Colorado Constitution, Article 5, Section 2(2)

(2) Each member of the general assembly, before he

enters upon his official duties, shall take an oath or

affirmation to support the constitution of the United States

and of the state of Colorado and to faithfully perform the

duties of his office according to the best of his ability. This

oath or affirmation shall be administered in the chamber of

the house to which the member has been elected.

The Respondents have not faithfully performed the duties

of their office to the best of their ability resulting in violations of

due process of law resulting in Civil Rights violations of the

Complainants.

Section 12. Each house makes and enforces

rules. Each house shall have power to determine the rules of

its proceedings and adopt rules providing punishment of its

members or other persons for contempt or disorderly

behavior in its presence; to enforce obedience to its

process; to protect its members against violence, or offers

of bribes or private solicitation, and, with the concurrence of

two-thirds, to expel a member, but not a second time for the

same cause, and shall have all other powers necessary for

the legislature of a free state. A member expelled for

corruption shall not thereafter be eligible to either house of

the same general assembly, and punishment for contempt or

disorderly behavior shall not bar a prosecution for the same

offense.

RESPONDENTS: SENATOR WILLIAMS, SMALLWOOD, GUZMAN, HOLBERT, GRANTHAM. COMPLAINANTS: PETER COULTER, CLIFF BATTISTA, RUTH SADLER, LUANNE FLEMING, ROBIN AUSTIN, [AND THOUSANDS OF PRO-SE LITIGANTS ACROSS THE STATE OF COLORADO.]

The Respondents have not enforced obedience to their

process in an additional violation of due process of law resulting

in Civil Rights violations of the Complainants.

Section 17. No law passed but by bill or amendments.

No law shall be passed except by bill, and no bill shall be so

altered or amended on its passage through either house as

to change its original purpose.

The Respondents have violated this provision of the

Constitution by allowing Senate members to partake in

proceedings of the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs

Committee on May 4th, 2017 concerning 12 bills. None of these

bills can become law under this section because the bills were

not properly vetted by proper and legal Senate Committee

Members

Section 20. Bills referred to committee printed. No bill

shall be considered or become a law unless referred to a

committee, returned therefrom, and printed for the use of the

members. Every measure referred to a committee of

reference of either house shall be considered by the

committee upon its merits, and no rule of either house shall

deny the opportunity for consideration and vote by a

committee of reference upon such a measure within

appropriate deadlines. A motion that the committee report

the measure favorably to the committee of the whole, with or

without amendments, shall always be in order within

appropriate deadlines. Each measure reported to the

committee of the whole shall appear on the appropriate

house calendar in the order in which it was reported out of

the committee of reference and within appropriate deadlines.

RESPONDENTS: SENATOR WILLIAMS, SMALLWOOD, GUZMAN, HOLBERT, GRANTHAM. COMPLAINANTS: PETER COULTER, CLIFF BATTISTA, RUTH SADLER, LUANNE FLEMING, ROBIN AUSTIN, [AND THOUSANDS OF PRO-SE LITIGANTS ACROSS THE STATE OF COLORADO.]

The Respondents have violated this Section as at least two

members of the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs

Committee were improperly seated making a proper “return

therefrom” impossible. The result, according to the Constitution is

that any bill considered by this Committee “shall not become law.”

Section 22b. Effect of sections 20 and 22a. Any action

taken in violation of section 20 or 22a of this constitution

shall be null and void.

The Respondents violated Section 20 as described above

and pursuant to Section 22b; all 12 bills considered on May 4th by

the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee are

null and void under the Colorado Constitution.

    IV. VIOLATION OF C.R.S. TITLE 24, ARTICLE 18,ETHICS.

Section 3. Statutory Code of Ethics Article 18 of title 24, C.R.S., prescribes standards of conduct for government officials and employees including Respondents. Part 1 establishes a “Code of Ethics”, and part 2 describes prohibited acts relating to contracts and claims. Rules of conduct versus ethical principles. The code of ethics provides that the holding of public office is a public trust, and a member of the General Assembly or other public official “whose conduct departs from his fiduciary duty is liable to the people of the state as a trustee of property and shall suffer such other liabilities as a private fiduciary would suffer for abuse of his trust”.3 The code further enumerates specified “rules of conduct” applicable to members of the General Assembly and provides that “proof beyond a reasonable doubt of commission of any act enumerated” is proof that the actor “has breached his fiduciary duty and the public trust”.

                     IV. REMEDY SOUGHT
     The Complainant would request both Public Admonishment
and Fines;
     Any other violations the Ethics Committee has
jurisdiction and finds appropriate after investigation.

I/We hereby acknowledge that the facts presented herein are true to the best of my/our knowledge, and we will cooperate in the process regarding this complaint and will appear at any proceeding of the Independent Ethics Commission if the complaint is scheduled for a hearing.

2003, and January 12, 2005, shall be deemed to refer to the following committees:

Committees – 1/8/03 to 1/12/05

1 Business Affairs and Labor.
2 Health, Environment, Welfare, and

Institutions.

Committees – after 1/12/05

Business, Labor, and Technology. Health and Human Services.

(b) The following committees shall be appointed at the beginning of each regular session of the General Assembly convening after a general election and at such other times as may be necessary, and the members of the committees shall serve at the pleasure of the appropriate appointing authority:

(1) Senate Services.
(2) Joint Budget Committee.

The majority leader of the Senate shall appoint the majority members to these committees, with the majority leader appointing to the Joint Budget Committee the majority party members elected by the Senate majority party caucus to serve on this committee. The minority leader shall appoint the minority members to these committees, with the minority leader appointing to the Joint Budget Committee the minority party member elected by the Senate minority party caucus to serve on this committee.

(c) No committee shall sit during the sessions of the Senate nor at any time occupy the Senate chamber without leave granted by the Senate.

(d) Committees shall report upon all matters referred to them without unnecessary delay, and in case of an adverse report, shall at all times state explicitly reasons therefor, in which case such adverse report shall not be acted upon until the following day. They shall return all petitions and other papers referred to them with the bill or resolution, if any, to which they relate.

(e) If a committee of reference decides that a bill referred to it should be referred to another committee it shall do so by means of a committee of

reference report.

(f) The Senate services committee shall see to the proper revision, engrossment, and enrollment of bills. The committee may examine all bills, joint resolutions, joint memorials, and amendments, or other papers which are required to be engrossed before they go out of the possession of the Senate; they may also compare such amendments as shall be made in the House to Senate bills, that are concurred in by the Senate, for the purpose of seeing if they are correct for enrollment in the bill. No bill shall have its

third reading unless it shall have been printed, nor until it has been correctly engrossed. The said committee may examine all bills before third reading and final passage, for the purpose of avoiding repetitions, unconstitutional provisions, securing proper title and of ensuring accuracy in the text and references and consistency with the language of existing statutes, and as to whether any amendments adopted by the Senate, if not already printed, are of that material character required by the constitution to be printed. If the committee examines any bills, it may report the nature of errors, with a concise suggestion as to the change necessary to correct the same. The committee may examine all bills originating in the Senate to see that they are correctly enrolled, signed by the President and the Speaker of the House, and presented to the

Governor for signature. The committee may also authorize, review, and audit all expenditures for equipment, supplies, and services necessary for the efficient conduct of the business of the Senate and may employ such officers and employees of the Senate as authorized and assign them to their duties. The committee shall have leave to report at any time on its activities and may delegate any of its responsibilities to the secretary, as appropriate.

SENATE RULE 22

22. COLORADO SENATE COMMITTEE RULES

(a) (1) The committees of reference of the Senate shall meet at the times and places specified in the Schedule of Committee Meetings adopted by the Senate at the beginning of each regular session of the General Assembly; the committees shall be scheduled to meet according to the categories in subsection (l) (1) of this rule. Except as otherwise provided in subsection (a) (2) of this rule, a committee of reference that is directed

to meet upon adjournment in the Schedule of Committee Meetings shall convene fifteen minutes following adjournment or recess, as applicable, of the Senate.

(2) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection (a) (2), a committee of reference may hold a committee meeting at a time and place, but not on a day of the week, other than is provided in the Schedule of Committee Meetings, provided the chairman determines that to do so serves the public interest, provided the chairman publicly announces the meeting to the Senate at least twenty-four hours in advance of the actual meeting, and provided the announcement is made while the Senate is in actual session. If within the last two weeks of a regular session or at any other time during a regular session when the chairman has received prior approval from the President, a committee of reference may hold a committee meeting at a time and place and, if necessary, on a day of the week, other than is provided in the Schedule of Committee Meetings, provided that the chairman publicly announces the meeting to the Senate as much in advance as possible of the actual meeting and provided the

announcement is made while the Senate is in actual session.

(3) If a regularly scheduled committee meeting is cancelled, the chairman shall announce such cancellation while the Senate is in actual session prior to the time the meeting is scheduled to take place.

(b) A majority of the members of each committee of reference shall constitute a quorum.

(c) Proxies, either written or oral, shall not be permitted for any purpose.

(d) No final committee action shall be taken upon a measure unless notice of the measures that are to be considered is posted at least one calendar day prior to the scheduled meetings at which the measures are to be considered. The numbers, prime sponsor, and abbreviated title shall be

included in the posted announcement and shall be printed in the appropriate daily calendar of the Senate. Failure of the chairman to post such notice shall not preclude the committee of reference from taking any action on a measure if such action shall receive a favorable vote of a majority of the members of the committee.

(e) (1) The chairman of each committee of reference shall determine the order of business for each committee meeting, including the measures that will be considered at each meeting. However, at least seven days after a measure has been delivered to the chairman, upon the request of a majority of all members of the committee of reference that a specific measure be considered, such request to be made at a regularly scheduled committee meeting, the chairman of the committee shall announce such fact, have it listed on the subsequent daily calendar of the Senate, and schedule such measure for consideration at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the committee.

(2) Repealed, Senate Resolution 03-10

(f) After a committee of reference has taken its final action on a measure, the chairman of the committee shall make a report of such action to the Secretary of the Senate within five legislative days. However, during the last three days of a legislative session, the chairman of the committee shall make any committee of reference report as soon as possible. Final action shall consist of reporting a measure out of committee, with or

RESPONDENTS: SENATOR WILLIAMS, SMALLWOOD, GUZMAN, HOLBERT, GRANTHAM. COMPLAINANTS: PETER COULTER, CLIFF BATTISTA, RUTH SADLER, LUANNE FLEMING, ROBIN AUSTIN, [AND THOUSANDS OF PRO-SE LITIGANTS ACROSS THE STATE OF COLORADO.]

without amendments, for consideration by the committee of the whole, reporting a measure out of committee, with or without amendments, for consideration by the committee of the whole with a recommendation that the bill be placed on the consent calendar, a recommendation for reference to another committee of reference, or postponing the measure indefinitely. A motion to postpone consideration of a measure for more than 30 days or until a date beyond the date for adjournment sine die of the legislative session shall be considered a motion to postpone indefinitely. In addition, a measure shall be deemed postponed indefinitely

when there has been a tie vote on a motion that would constitute final action and subsequently the applicable deadline for Senate committees of reference to report bills passes without action by the Senate Committee on Delayed Bills to extend the deadline for the measure. The chairman shall make a report to the Secretary of the Senate indicating that any such measure is deemed postponed indefinitely. Following the date of the applicable committee deadline, the chairman shall have five legislative days in which the General Assembly is in actual session to make such report. Every bill shall be reported out of committee for consideration by the Committee of the Whole or indefinitely postponed by a committee of reference prior to the adjournment sine die of the legislative session, and a report to that effect shall be delivered to the secretary. No further action may be taken on any bill that has been indefinitely postponed by a committee of reference and delivered to the secretary.

(g) The staff assistant assigned to each committee of reference shall be responsible to the chairman of the committee for the proper preparation of all reports.

(h) Upon receipt of a measure by the chairman of a committee of reference, the chairman shall be responsible for the safekeeping of the measure, but may give custody of the measure to a staff assistant.

(i) The chairman of a committee of reference shall vote on every question coming before the committee except those in which the chairman has an

immediate personal or financial interest. The chairman shall not vote twice, as in the case to make a tie and then to cast the deciding vote. All other members shall vote on all measures before the committee except proposals in which the member has an immediate personal or financial interest.

(j) If a member of a committee of reference is absent from three consecutive scheduled committee meetings without being excused, the committee chairman shall report such fact to the floor leader of the party

to which the member belongs.

(k) A recommendation of any committee of reference to amend a measure shall not become an integral part of the measure in question until adopted by the committee of the whole.
