CHEYENNE -- A proposed bill to drastically reduce the administrative role of Wyoming's top state public schools official cleared two Senate committees Friday, even though Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill says the proposal would make her office a ceremonial position. Senate File 104 was approved by the Senate Education Committee without debate on a 5-0 vote and then won a 4-1 endorsement from the Senate Appropriations Committee. The measure goes to the full Senate for consideration. SF104 transfers all Education Department divisions, agencies, programs, positions, personnel, property, budgets and functions to the new director. The law would take effect when passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Matt Mead.
