Bill To Bar Some Wyoming Officials From Hiring Own Attorneys

Wyoming Capitol Building

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bill is being proposed that would discontinue allowing four Wyoming statewide elected officials to hire their own legal counsel.
The bill proposed by state Rep. Pete Illoway, of Cheyenne, would require the secretary of state, public instruction superintendent, treasurer and auditor to get their legal counsel through the state attorney general’s office.
The current arrangement was set up because the governor appoints the attorney general, and sometimes the governor and other elected officials don’t agree on policy.
Illoway says his motive centers on how Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has used her attorney. He believes the attorney has taken on too many duties that Hill should be doing.
Hill says she needs her own attorney because of the complicated legal issues that come up daily in her agency.
