Earlier this summer a 16-member committee was formed by the Wyoming Legislature to investigate claims against Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill that were outlined in a Governor's Inquiry report. The report states that Hill misspent federal funds, took advantage of state resources and created a less than desirable work environment as head of the state Department of Education.

State Representative John Patton is a member of the House Rules and Procedures Committee that accounts for most of the Select Investigative Committee, and he says that the investigation is moving along slower than had been anticipated.

Patton didn't give a timetable as to when a decision would be made regarding Superintendent Hill, but he added that he they almost have to come to some type of resolution before January when the Legislature will convene for their budget session.
