Thomas E. Lubnau, II (born December 12, 1958), is the Republican Speaker of the Wyoming House of Representatives, a position to which he was elected by his colleagues in January 2013. A lawyer from Gillette, Lubnau was first elected to the state House in 2004 from District 31 in Campbell County in northeastern Wyoming.[1]

Lubnau served as predident of the Wyoming State Bar in 2002 - 2003. Prior to that, he was president-elect (2001 - 2002), vice-president (2000 - 2001) and bar commissioner (1997 - 2000).

Prior to his Speakership, Lubnau was the House Speaker Pro Tempore in 2007 and 2008 and the House Majority Leader in 2011 and 2012. He is a graduate of the University of Wyoming in his native Laramie, with both bachelor's and Juris Doctor degrees in 1981 and 1984, respectively. He is affiliated with Rotary International. Lubnau and his wife, Rita, have two children. He is Episcopalian.[1]

Lubnau is the first House Speaker from Campbell County since Republican Cliff H. Davis, who served in 1973 and 1974.[2]

In the summer of 2013, Lubnau called for a still pending investigation into allegations that Cindy Hill, a fellow Republican, but with Tea Party movement support, had misused her office as state superintendent of public instruction and created a "hostile workplace environment."[3][4]The investigating committee could recommend that the full House launch impeachment proceedings against Hill. Were impeachment approved, Hill would, upon conviction in the Wyoming Senate, be required to vacate her position. No deadline has been set for the committee to complete its work.[5]
