Legislators Explain Hill Votes

Two local state legislators joined Public Pulse host, Kim Love, on Newstalk 930, KROE Monday to talk about their votes that essentially ousted Superintendent of Public Instruction, Cindy Hill, who was elected by Wyoming voters.

House Representative, Kathy Coleman, says it was a tough vote to take on as a freshman legislator. She said if she had the time, she would still be trying to make up her mind.

Senator, John Schiffer, said the vote couldn't be postponed until after Hill's term was over with.

Schiffer serves the legislature as the chairman of management audit. He said he found evidence Hill used special education funds to fly the state's airplane to a political rally.

The removal of Superintendent Hill's duties by the legislature is a case that will be heard by the Wyoming Supreme Court.
