Superintendent Investigation Delayed
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The legislative committee investigating Wyoming schools Superintendent Cindy Hill is delaying its inquiry.
House Speaker Tom Lubnau says the committee still has a lot of information to review and more to consider, such as a federal audit now underway.
Lubnau had wanted the Select Investigative Committee’s work to be done before the start of next month’s legislative session. But that won’t happen now.
The panel has been looking into possible misconduct by Hill while she ran the state Education Department in 2011 and 2012. The House panel could recommend whether she should be impeached by the full House.
Hill has denied any wrongdoing.
A new law enacted last year removed the superintendent has head of the agency. Hill still retains her state elected office although with far fewer duties.
