The first meeting of the committee investigating State Representative Douglas Bruce begins Friday afternoon.

House Speaker Andrew Romanoff formed the special committee that has powers similar to an ethics committee. This is after Bruce kicked a member of the press during a prayer on the house floor. The Colorado Springs republican says that the photographer caused a disruption by snapping his photo during the prayer.

The committee will look at various house and legislative rules, and from those they will determine what disciplinary action will be taken. Local State Representative Steve King will sit on the committee.
