CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Legislature's Management Council will meet July 12 to consider empaneling a special committee to investigate state schools Superintendent Cindy Hill's administration of the Wyoming Education Department.

House Speaker Tom Lubnau, of Gillette, has requested that the council appoint the House Rules Committee to handle the probe. The special committee could recommend impeachment proceedings against Hill.

The Management Council oversees legislative matters when lawmakers are not in session. It is chaired by Republican Senate President Tony Ross, of Cheyenne.

A governor-appointed inquiry reported information last week about possible misuse of federal money for unauthorized programs and trips in the state plane under Hill's administration.

Hill, who no longer runs the Education Department, denies misusing funds and the state plane, saying she's a victim of a witch hunt by the Legislature.
