CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — It is time for Gov. Matt Mead to decide whether he will sign into law a bill that makes major changes to the powers and duties of the state superintendent of public instruction.

The governor has until the end of the day Tuesday to sign, veto or allow the legislation to become law.

The bill would immediately replace the elected superintendent of public instruction as head of the state Education Department with a director appointed by the governor. The superintendent would remain an elected state officer with some education duties.

Superintendent Cindy Hill has not said whether she would mount a court challenge if the bill becomes law.

Senate File 104 was the first measure to pass the Legislature this session.
