GOP leaders endorse superintendent law repeal

Apr 8, 2013

The Wyoming Republican Party Central Committee has approved a resolution endorsing the drive to repeal the state law that took power away from the state superintendent of public instruction.

The Central Committee approved the resolution on a 40-32 vote over the weekend in Buffalo.

The action is a slap at the Republican controlled state Legislature and Republican Gov. Matt Mead who approved the law during this past legislative session.

The law removed Republican Superintendent Cindy Hill as head of the state Education Department and replaced her with a director appointed by the governor.
