Colorado Senate unanimously approves independent funding for judicial discipline

The Denver Gazette: The Colorado Senate on Wednesday unanimously passed a bill that independently funds the state commission that investigates and disciplines judges, a body whose budget had been under the thumb of the Supreme Court.

Senate Bill 22-201 now heads across the state Capitol to the House, where it will undergo its own set of hearings.

The bill also creates an eight-member committee of legislators — four from the Senate and four from the House — to study how the Colorado Commission on Judicial Discipline operates, including whether a constitutional amendment to make the body autonomous should be brought to voters.
