CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming Schools Supt. Cindy Hill is firing back at state lawmakers who serve on a committee that released a report this week critical of her management of the education department. Hill has submitted a complaint to the Wyoming State Bar complaining that five lawmakers who also are lawyers who served on the House of Representatives Select Investigative Committee violated legal ethical standards.

The committee earlier this week released a report concluding Hill failed to follow legislative funding directives and demanded education department staff to demonstrate personal loyalty to her. Hill, a Republican seeking nomination for governor in next month's primary election, denies the report's claims. House Speaker Tom Lubnau, a Gillette lawyer who serves on the committee, says ethical rules forbid him and other lawyers involved from commenting.
