State Sen. Dave Kinskey's proposed constitutional amendment, Senate Joint Resolution 9, passed the Senate last week and has gone to Wyoming's House of Representatives.

Kinskey, of Sheridan, said the amendment would determine who controls public education in the state.

Kinskey said education decisions in Wyoming are currently made by judges, and in his opinion, that is taxation without representation.

Kinskey said education is a top priority in Wyoming for the voters, and for him. He added it's intensely personal. He said parents and voters want to have a say, and they should have a say. He said the constitutional amendment puts them back in charge, instead of courts and consultants. Kinskey said earlier if the bill passes and is signed by Gov. Mead, the proposed amendment would go before Wyoming voters in 2018.
