GILLETTE, Wyo. — House Speaker Tom Lubnau has appointed the House Rules and Procedures Committee to investigate Superintendent Cindy Hill's management of the state Education Department over the last two years.

The Legislature's Management Council gave Lubnau permission to investigate information in a recent inquiry that Hill may have misused federal funds while she ran the agency. Hill was stripped of her authority over the agency by a new state law enacted this past winter.

No date has yet been set for the committee to begin its work.

In addition, Lubnau disclosed his communications regarding Hill and possible impeachment of her.

In various emails, the Gillette Republican stated that talk of impeachment was premature and a disservice to the superintendent's office.
