During his monthly news conference Wednesday, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead commented on a recently released poll that shows that residents of Wyoming have significant trust in state government.

The Gallup poll asked 600 people in every state, how much trust they had in their state government. Wyoming ranked second with 76 percent of respondents indicating a great deal or fair amount of trust in state government.

Mead said that economic indicators show that Wyoming is in a good position, and that improving the lives of the citizens is his main focus.

The Governor also commented on Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill's decision to reject a proposed order by Wyoming Attorney General Peter Michael that would allow for her return to the Department of Education immediately.

Hill issued a letter via email to Governor Mead Tuesday that stated that stated that she will not return under his conditions, because they are unconstitutional, and the constitution is not negotiable.
