The Wyoming Legislature will hold a special session this spring to deal with the legal matters in the Cindy Hill case.

The Legislature’s Management Council, made up of mostly House and Senate leaders, is hedging its bets on whether the Wyoming Supreme Court will reopen the Cindy Hill case.
The State High Court ruled last week Senate File 104 as unconstitutional.
It had replaced the State Schools Superintendent as head of the Education Department with an appointed director.
So now the Management Council has decided to have a special session this spring to draft new legislation dealing with how the Education Department will be run.
This has to be approved by the full legislature next week.
