Wyoing Supreme Court

The Wyoming Senate has given initial approval to a bill allowing the legislature to work on a solution to the Supreme Court ruling that declared the removal of duties from Superintendent Cindy Hill unconstitutional.

The attorney general is appealing the ruling, but the bill would allow a group of legislators to address the constitutional issues raised by the court.  Senator Curt Meier worried that language in the bill giving the legislative committee 90 days to find a solution could draw out the process. But Senate President Tony Ross says the goal is to move quickly.
