The House Committee on Minerals, Business and Economic Development voted 9-0 today in favor of a bill to make secret the names of finalists for the job of University of Wyoming president.

House Bill 223 was filed by House Majority Leader Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, after District Judge Jeff Donnell ruled last week the names should be made public.

UW officials testified today that four of eight finalists for UW president withdrew after the judge’s ruling.

Bruce Moats of Cheyenne, the attorney for the newspapers, including the Casper Star-Tribune, which filed the lawsuit to make the names public, argued that the public has a right to information about the people considered for the job of running the state’s only four-year university.
