More Senate Work On Hill Fix

Feb 24, 2014

The Wyoming Senate is continuing to work on a bill that will set up a so-called super committee to attempt to fix the law that took powers away from Superintendent Cindy Hill.  The Wyoming Supreme Court ruled that in particular Hill should run the Department of Education and not an appointed Director.  

During debate on the bill Senator Curt Meier of LaGrange suggested that the Senate provide specific suggestions to the committee.

"This is an opportunity to give the super committee some direction, so when we come back into a special session they have an idea what the Senate would like to see in the legislation that will come before us."

But Senator Bruce Burns of Sheridan opposed Meier's approach saying that it will tie the hands of the committee.  The Senate will hold final debate on Tuesday.
