Wyo. House Speaker Pushes Probe Into Hills Management of Ed. Dept.
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 department’s operations and management practices.
The most troubling information the report found involved possible misuse of federal money for unauthorized programs and trips in the state plane while under Hill’s administration. That has raised discussion of possible impeachment proceedings against Hill, who has since been removed as head of the agency.
Lubnau says the House can do nothing, appoint a special committee to investigate further or call a special session.
