Hill Lawsuit Argues Education Powers

State Superintendent Cindy Hill

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Schools Superintendent Cindy Hill’s legal challenge to a new state law contends the framers of the Wyoming Constitution didn’t intend for the governor and Legislature to have exclusive control over public education.

Hill is challenging the constitutionality of a new state law that stripped her office of many of its powers by removing her as administrator of the state Education Department.

Her attorney filed a final brief Monday with the state Supreme Court, which will hear oral arguments in the case Aug. 20.

Hill contends the state constitution gives the superintendent unique authority to oversee public education. The state argues that the constitution directs the state Legislature to determine the superintendent’s powers.

Hill filed her legal challenge immediately after Gov. Matt Mead signed the bill into law last winter.
