CODY, Wyo. (AP) — State lawmakers gathered at a public forum in Cody refused to talk about recent legislation that has stripped the state superintendent of public instruction of many of her duties.

Park County Republicans hosted the meeting and participants included Sen. Hank Coe, R-Cody and co-chairman of the Joint Education Committee. The new law was expected to be a main topic of discussion.

The Associated Press reports Coe announced at Tuesday’s meeting that the bill wouldn’t be discussed due to pending litigation. State Superintendent Cindy Hill has filed a lawsuit contesting the new law.

The other lawmakers present were Sens. Gerry Geis, R-Worland, and Reps. Elaine Harvey, R-Lovell, Sam Krone, R-Cody, David Northrup, R-Powell, and Nathan Winters, R-Thermopolis.

Geis and Winters opposed the bill and the other four supported it.
