It's been almost two months since the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled that legislation enacted last year stripping Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill of most of her duties was unconstitutional. Earlier this week, Laramie County District Judge Thomas Campbell decided not to issue an order immediately reinstating Hill's former duties, instead he ordered attorneys for the state and Hill to file written analysis over the next three weeks on whether any parts of the law are constitutional.

State Representative Mike Madden was a guest on News Talk 9-30 KROE'S Public Pulse program this week where he talked about the original ruling by the State Supreme Court in late January.

The Representative further referenced the court's opinion, in particular, the history between the legislature and the superintendent position.
