Deadline next week for sigs on 'Hill Bill' repeal petition

May 22, 2013 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- An effort to refer a new Wyoming law to a statewide vote has one week left to collect the required signatures.

The Wyoming Constitution Party is leading a petition drive to repeal the new law that changes the powers and duties of the state superintendent of public instruction.

Organizers have until next Tuesday to collect 37,606 valid signatures.

Referendum sponsor Jennifer Young says she's confident the goal will be met.

She said she doesn't know how many signatures have been collected so far.

The petition would put a referendum on the ballot for the 2014 general election.

The last time a referendum made the ballot in Wyoming was 1996.
