Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s state public schools chief says a legislative proposal to strip her office of its role leading the state Department of Education would take away the voice of the people who elected her. The legislation would create a new director of the agency who would be governor appointed. It comes amid lawmaker’s deep distrust of Superintendent Cindy Hill’s leadership.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Some Wyoming lawmakers are pushing to pre-empt any federal crackdown on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in the aftermath of last month’s school shooting in Connecticut. A bill pending in the Wyoming Legislature would state that any federal limitation on guns would be unenforceable. It also would make it a state felony for federal agents to try to enforce such regulations.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bill to bring Wyoming law into compliance with a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that outlawed mandatory life sentences for juvenile killers has cleared its first hearing. The House Judiciary Committee yesterday recommended changing Wyoming law so that juveniles convicted of first-degree murder would be eligible for parole after serving 25 years.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Wyoming Cowgirls fell on the road to Boise State 70-68 on Wednesday night in their first Mountain West Conference game of the season. Wyoming had several chances at the end of the game but failed to convert. The Cowgirls will return home to face Nevada tomorrow afternoon.
