Investigation of state superintendent moving slowly

Aug 30, 2013 - The Associated Press

The Legislature's Select Investigative Committee hasn't met since Aug. 7.

CHEYENNE -- The Wyoming House investigation into Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has been slowed by document requests and other behind-the-scenes activity.

The Legislature's Select Investigative Committee hasn't met since Aug. 7.

The panel was formed to look into claims that Hill, among other things, misspent federal money, abused state resources and created a hostile work environment when she headed the state Education Department.

The committee could recommend whether Hill should be impeached.

Hill has denied any wrongdoing.

House Speaker Tom Lubnau said one of the key documents being sought is the unredacted version of a report done by an inquiry team appointed by the governor.

Mead spokesman Renny MacKay says the attorney general's office is reviewing the request.
