CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The legislative committee investigating state schools Superintendent Cindy Hill has quietly dropped a provision in their rules granting Hill time to respond to their final report before it becomes public.

The special House committee approved the change earlier this month on a 15-2 vote.

The committee also deleted the requirement for another meeting before the report becomes public.

Republican Rep. Rosie Berger, of Sheridan, is a member of the committee.

Berger tells the Casper Star-Tribune that Hill was given ample time to comment during testimony last January. She says the investigation is nearly 10 months old and members of the committee felt it was necessary to get its report done.

However, some committee members opposed the changes, saying it's unfair to make the change this late in the process.
