Letter to the editor: Does SF104 usurp your vote?

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 10th, 2013

Referendum seeks to repeal 2013 Senate Enrolled Act l [the law resulting from the passage of SF104] which amended the duties of, and transferred specified duties from, the state superintendent of public instruction to the director of the state department of education.

With the passage of SF104, the director of the state department of education is currently a position appointed by the governor. In mid-term, the duties of the elected superintendent of public instruction were changed immediately upon the passage of SF104 and the signature of the governor during the 2013 legislative session.

The Wyoming Constitution

Article 1, Section 1. Power inherent in the people.

All power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety and happiness; for the advancement of these ends they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper.

Remember, our federal and state constitutions were written to protect individual rights and limit government. Does the very essence of SF104 violate this principle?

Does SF104 violate Article 1, Section 1 by usurping your vote? Now is your chance to decide...
