Cheyenne, WY (AP) - A bill that would allow for a special legislative session to deal with fallout from the recent state Supreme Court decision in the superintendent of public instruction case has died in the state House.

Senate File 106 died Monday evening when the House adjourned for the day without holding its first debate on the proposal. Any bills not debated by the first time Monday automatically died under the budget session schedule.

The bill had passed the Senate earlier.

The Supreme Court recently ruled 3-2 that a law enacted last year taking away many of the superintendent's duties was unconstitutional.

Under the bill, a special interim committee would have been created to come up with a recommendation for a possible special legislative session to consider.
