Kansas Solar Electric Co~operatives, Inc.
While taking a short break during the first 2012 energy hearings before the Kansas Legislative Joint Utility Committee, Ms. Smith attended November 22, 2011 as founder & CEO of K-SEC (as instructed to do by Representative Sloan and various legislative administors) she was unexpectedly threatened and forced to leave the Capitol Building when asking for directions to a restroom. Upon her inquiry to Capitol Police Officer Dickson for directions to a nearby restroom, she was first informed by him that he had allegedly verbally banned her forever from the Kansas Capitol Building during the Bremby Decision hearings in 2007 wherein she had testified about the many benefits of Solar Energy and Solar Architecture. Officer Dickson demanded that she immediately leave the KS Capitol Building and would not even allow her to use the restroom.
For more information, please read proposed resolution and the resolution passed by sponsorship of Representative Tom Sloan. Notice that he removed all mention of The K-SEC Model and attributed K-SEC's published words written and copyrighted by Eileen M. Smith, M.Arch. to something her refers to as the Vision 2020 Group.
Representative Sloan then wrote to Ms. Smith and instructed her as K-SEC founder to schedule legislative hearings with Representative Carl Holmes. K-SEC asked for assistance where she was not familiar with the legislative hearings process and K-SEC was not able to hire a lobbyist.
Representative Holmes did not answer any of the 2011 or 2012 K-SEC e-mails requesting hearings related to solar energy in Kansas. Carl Holmes has never responded to any of Ms. Smith's correspondence to KS legislators since 2005 regarding K-SEC and The K-SEC Model. Representative Carl Holmes is chairman of the House Utility Committee and he presides over Kansas legislative Joint Utility Committee hearings.
NOTE: The alleged common policy/practice of Kansas State Capitol Police to allegedly issue verbal and undocumented forever bans upon venerable citizens involved in law making activities like testifying is highly unconstitutional and illegal.
K-SEC did not receive any notice of alleged ban until Nov. 22, 2011 around noon.
The most powerful known form of human government is by the people, for the people and of the people. The people must be involved to preserve democracy.
Many Kansans urge me to move forward with The K-SEC Model and insist they want solar energy, today. However, very few donate $10 or $100 or $1000 waiting for K-SEC to evolve without resources...
K-SEC issued a million non-profit shares at $10 each to provide an opportunity for investors to have something of value to encourage fruition.
When wondering whether to invest, remember the story of the Little Red Hen who could find no one to help him make stew.
He asked numerous people for help, but most of them were too busy to help. They did not seem to care where he got resources to complete his stew. However, when he finally achieved his goal, they all wanted a bowl of his delicious stew.
Please do not delay in helping evolve The K-SEC Model. It is one small, but vital solution, making an important step forward to evolve a meaningful use of BI-PV Solar Architecture in the world in this decade.
Every person of every race color religion nationality gender and sexual preference breath in communion 14,000 times a day. Think of K-SEC when we breath. Please join this effort to preserve our life-sustaining atmosphere on Earth, today!
CONTACT K-SEC with your questions, resources, assistance and invitations to speak!
We want to thank all of the people who are working to reduce fossil fuel emissions in Kansas. Thank you!
The Bremby Decision October 18, 2007
Roderick Bremby the previous Secretary of the Kansas Dept of Health & Environment denied approval of the coal permitsfor the coal plan proposed in Holcomb, KS by Sunflower and Tri State. He was ousted from office in retaliation per the following Kansas statute.
KANSAS STATUTES ANNOTATED
Chapter 65-3029 Disrespected and disrupted regulation of coal plants in Kansas while showing favoritism to the Sunflower Corporation and their cohorts.
Kansas Legislatorsillegally advocated for coal option in this unusual statute providing special treatment for Sunflower Co. demanding the Secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment must provide a permit to build the proposed coal plant in Holcomb, Kansas -not for Kansas, but to allegedly provide electricity to Colorado. 50% of the electricity generated from the plant would be lost in distribution. The plant would expand numerous existing environmental problems. Permit approved provides total self-monitoring of fossil fuel emissions by Sunflower Co.
Representative Tom Sloan said that legislators could not pass a resolution mentioning Ms. Smith or the Kansas Solar Electric Co~operatives, alleging it would show favortism ....
Maybe we should issue a forever ban from the Kansas State Capitol Building to Representative Tom Sloan to make sure legislators are not showing favoritism with bans...
Ms. Smith was shocked by this sudden and illegal taking of her constitutional right to observe and participate in state government. It was frightening.
She was told by an employee that worked for 20 years with the Kansas Highway Patrol that includes the Kansas Capitol Building Police that undocumented bans from the State Capitol Building were common and often issued against venerable people. The person indicated that they are rarely put in writing and often not communicated.
Ms. Smith followed up with inquiries and communications via telephone and e-mails to agency supervisors.
Mr. Russell administrator of the Kansas State Capitol Building referred her to Supervisors Captain Golightly and Chief Hatcher.
After investigation, Chief Hatcher said the alleged ban was limited to the Senate Chambers, however he refused to put this in writing to Ms. Smith or K-SEC.
The alleged ban was issued per alleged e-mails from Senator Emler's administrative assistant in 2007. Ms. Smith had testified before the Senate Utilities Committee and Senator Emler had instructed her to meet with him, however he did not ever facilitate a meeting to discuss K-SEC.
Ms. Smith had never been notified of any correspondence from Senator Emler's office. Senator Emler is Chair of the Kansas Committee on State Security. He had instructed Ms. Smith to initiate the Joint Resolution she wrote in March 2011. He said his goal was to assure Kansas legislators were aware of The K-SEC Model and Ms. Smith's extensive work in BI-PV Solar Architecture the past 20 years.
No one would put the alleged ban from the Kansas State Capitol Building and the alleged modified ban limited to the Senate Chambers in writing to Ms. Smith or K-SEC.
Further, Chief Hatcher indicated he would not forward the alleged e-mails from Senator Emler's administrator in violation of the Freedom of Information Act.
There was no reason given for the alleged ban. When Ms. Smith asked if the Senate Chambers included the viewing gallery, Chief Hatcher said he would check on that and get back to her. He has not returned her related calls or e-mails regarding this matter illegally intimidating Ms. Smith and interferring with her constitutional right as K-SEC's CEO to testify in energy hearings Winter-Spring 2012.
K-SEC questions Capitol Police authority to ban any Kansas citizen from the State Capitol Building without use of higher authority per written notice and related hearing.
A non-verbal alleged forever ban communicated verbally three year after it was allegedly issued without reason or documentation is an extreme and highly illegal taking of Ms. Smith's inherent freedoms while illegally interferring with equal access to KS lawmaking via extreme intimidation.
American soldiers are fighting for democratic freedoms in other nations to help them develop equal access to the freedoms that the constitution assures us in the United States.
It is this type of strong arm police state abuse and interference with government law making American soldiers are fighting wars in other nations to avoid.
In the meantime, we must continue to preserve and respect our rights as Americans to access the resources needed to assure humane discussions and decisions in law making if we are to assure the inherent freedoms granted by the United States Constitution.
