Lubnau: Calls for Legislative Investigation Into Department of Education
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming House Speaker Tom Lubnau is recommending that the chamber form a special committee to investigate how the state Education Department operated under Superintendent Cindy Hill. Lubnau sent an email Monday to the 59 other members of the state House, asking for their thoughts on how to proceed following a report from the governor’s office on the departments operations and management practices. Much of the report dealt with Hill’s administration of the agency. The most troubling information involved possible misuse of federal money for unauthorized programs and trips in the state plane, which has raised discussion of possible impeachment proceedings against Hill. Lubnau says the House can do nothing, appoint a special committee to investigate further or call a special session. Hill no longer oversees the Education Department.
