Gov. Mead says Wyoming GOP committee too hasty on new law

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead says the Wyoming Republican Party Central Committee acted too hastily in addressing a new state law changing the powers and duties of the state superintendent of public instruction.

Last month, the Central Committee narrowly approved a resolution endorsing a petition drive to repeal the state law, which was approved by the Republican controlled state Legislature and Mead, who also is a Republican.

The law removed Republican Superintendent Cindy Hill as head of the state Education Department and replaced the statewide elected superintendent with a director appointed by the governor.

Mead said Friday that it would have been better if the Central Committee had waited for a court challenge to the law and an inquiry into the Education Department’s operations to be completed before considering the issue.
