Republicans Want Audit Commission To Push Forward With NRI Hearings Despite Justice Department Request


Republican state lawmakers say they want to press ahead with hearings and testimony about Governor Pat Quinn’s much-criticized anti-violence program… despite warnings from federal prosecutors that the move could interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation.

 

The Legislative Audit Commission is scheduled to meet next week to take testimony from former Quinn administration officials about allegations that the program misspent millions of dollars.

 

But the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Springfield has issued subpoenas for documents from some of those same officials.

 

The commission will vote next week on whether to agree to a delay in its proceedings… or to go ahead with its hearings.
