After two weeks of discussion, the Wyoming Legislature has voted to remove some duties from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The legislation awaits the signature of Governor Matt Mead.
The bill would hand over administration of the State Department of Education to a Governor appointed Director of Education.
Opponents of the bill once again complained that they were going against voters who supported the election of Superintendent Cindy Hill by a two-to-one margin.
Rock Springs Republican Stephen Watt again asked the House to slow down.
