the Independent Ethics Commission, in Open Session, is to determine

Commission will deliberate and discuss a pending complaint. The Chair shall

poll the Independent Ethics Commission members, and, upon consent of at

least two-thirds of the members present, may hold a Closed Executive

Session. If consent to the Closed Executive Session is not given, the items

may be discussed in Open Session or withdrawn from consideration.
