CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A special House committee investigating state schools Superintendent Cindy Hill has narrowed its focus.

The panel met Monday morning in Cheyenne and spent most of its time in closed session discussing private material and hearing legal counsel.

The committee did provide clues as to where its investigation is going. Of the dozens of issues it has been looking into, the panel is now concentrating on possible misappropriation of funds and resources under Hill's administration of the Wyoming Education Department.

Hill ran the department for about two years until she was removed last winter by a new state law.

House Speaker Tom Lubnau hopes to have a final committee report at the end of January. Depending on its findings, the committee's work could lead to impeachment proceedings against Hill.
