Cindy Hill Supporters Celebrate Court Win
Supporters of State Superintendent Cindy Hill rallied at the steps of the state capitol building Tuesday to celebrate a Wyoming Supreme Court ruling in her favor.
The state's high court earlier in the day ruled legislation that removed Hill as head of the state education department unconstitutional. That bill, Senate File 104, was signed into law by Governor Matt Mead in 2013. Hill supporter and tea party activist M. Lee Hasenauer called the court ruling "a victory for the tea party and for the voters" adding "the court got this one right". Hasenauer claims state lawmakers ignored emails that were "500 to 1" against Senate File 104 in approving the legislation.
He went on to say the ruling sends a clear message to state government that "they can't just ignore the will of the voters".
