CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming schools Superintendent Cindy Hill is criticizing House Speaker Tom Lubnau's request for a legislative investigation into how she ran the Department of Education.

She says she will be present when the Legislature's Management Council considers the request Friday.

Lubnau's came after Gov. Matt Mead's office released a report noting questions about federal funds being used for plane travel when Hill ran the education department. Hill's authority over the department was stripped by a new state law enacted this past winter.

Hill told Lubnau in a letter Tuesday that the investigation that led to the report is complete and she has been vindicated. She says she's "befuddled" about what additional information would be the objective of the legislative committee and says there has been a continuing effort to destroy her.
