A Roundhouse farewell for Max Coll

Capital Report New Mexico Blog Postings - Mon, 2014-04-07 17:18

SANTA FE – A crowd of about 300 showed up at the rotunda of the Roundhouse Monday for what can be described as “the last Coll of the House.”

Friends, constituents and fellow colleagues of former state House of Representatives committee chairman Max Coll paid their respects to the legislator who began his New Mexico legislative career as a Republican from Roswell and ended it as a Democrat from Santa Fe.

Former Speaker of the House Raymond Sanchez, D-Belen, quoted Robert Louis Stevenson in describing Coll as “The man is a success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it.”

“That to me epitomizes the life of my very good friend, Max Coll,” Sanchez said.

Coll died March 27 at the Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center after suffering a major stroke. Click here to read more about his life.

FISCAL WATCHDOG: Max Coll was known for watching the money at the Roundhouse. In this file photo, a sign on Coll’s desk reads, “What part of THERE IS NO MONEY do you not understand?”

In his second go-around in the Legislature, Coll became an advocate for environmental issues, the arts and health care but as current Speaker of the House W. Ken Martinez, D-Grants, mentioned, Coll was always a strong fiscal conservative.

“He would say, if you spent dollars foolishly you were taking dollars away from other sources,” Martinez said.

Rep. Gail Chasey, D-Albuquerque, remembered how Coll deftly handled his chairmanship of the House Taxation and Revenue Committee until his retirement in 2004. In one session, Democrats were trying to come up with a strategy to battle a complicated bill introduced by a Republican House member. Chasey said Coll’s advice was simple: “He can introduce the bill and we can misunderstand it at our leisure.”

Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela, D-Santa Fe, and state Sen. Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe, each wore old “Viva Max” campaign buttons while delivering their remarks.

In addition to his legislative career, Coll was a river-rafting enthusiast and one of his colleagues, Associated Press reporter Barry Massey, said Coll “lived as he rode” and said Coll’s talent at negotiating rapids offered him some life lessons: “Look where the current wants to take you and figure out how to make it better.”

New Mexico Watchdog talked to Rep. Varela after the service:

Coll’s wife, Catherine Joyce-Coll, and family members put together a rather unconventional obituary for Coll in the Santa Fe New Mexican. Click here to read it.

Supreme Court lets ruling stand on NM wedding photographer and same-sex couple

Capital Report New Mexico Blog Postings - Mon, 2014-04-07 12:33

YOU GOTTA DO IT: The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from New Mexico wedding photographer Elaine Huguenin, who lost a case after she refused to photograph a same-sex wedding. Photo from the Alliance Defense Fund.

By Rob Nikolewski │ New Mexico Watchdog

SANTA FE – It looks like the same-sex couple has won and the wedding photographer has lost.

The legal dispute over a wedding photography studio in New Mexico that refused to photograph a ceremony involving a same-sex ceremony will not be heard in the U.S. Supreme Court after all.

The justices on Monday refused to hear an appeal on behalf of Elane Photography of Albuquerque.

That means the decision of the New Mexico Supreme Court, which sided against the photographer, will stand. The U.S. Supreme Court did not elaborate on its decision, issuing a simple one-line order saying it would not hear the case of Elane Photography vs. Willock.

Last August, New Mexico Supreme Court Justice Richard Bosson wrote in a concurring opinion that although the studio’s owners may object on religious grounds to a same-sex wedding, they must offer the service because their business is open to the public.

The owners of Elane Photography, Elaine and Jonathan Huguenin “are free to think, to say, to believe, as they wish” Bosson wrote. Nevertheless, in the “world of the marketplace, of commerce, of public accommodation, the Huguenins have to channel their conduct, not their beliefs, so as to leave space for other Americans who believe something different.”

Doing so, Bosson said, is “the price of citizenship.”

The case has drawn attention because it highlighted the collision between claims of religious freedom against state anti-discrimination laws.
