CHEYENNE — A special House committee is beginning its investigation into state schools Superintendent Cindy Hill's management of the Wyoming Education Department over the last two years.

The panel holds its first meeting Wednesday afternoon in Cheyenne.

The Select Investigative Committee consists of 16 members. Depending on its findings, the committee could recommend impeachment proceedings against Hill.

The Legislature's Management Council gave House Speaker Tom Lubnau permission to investigate Hill after a recent inquiry reported a number of issues with how Hill managed the agency, including possible misuse of federal funds. Hill was stripped of her authority over the agency by a new state law enacted this past winter.

Hill has denied any wrongdoing and is challenging the constitutionality of the law.
