Lubnau To Address Wyo. GOP Central Committee In Casper
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — State House Speaker Tom Lubnau will address the Wyoming Republican Party Central Committee this weekend to answer questions about the legislative investigation into schools Superintendent Cindy Hill.
Central Committee member Karl Allred of Evanston says the investigation is a waste of money engineered by people with "a personal vendetta against her."
Lubnau noted that 42 members of the 60-member House supported the investigation into Hill.
He said he will attempt to explain the breadth of concern among lawmakers about Hill's administration of an agency that oversees an education budget of more than $1 billion a year and is key to Wyoming's current K-12 education reform efforts.
Depending on the committee's findings and recommendations, Hill could face impeachment before the full House. Hill has denied any wrongdoing.
The meeting will be held Saturday in Casper, but will not be open to the public.
