Governor Pat Quinn is spending millions of dollars on grants before an election, the same way he did before the 2010 election, according to leading Republican lawmakers.
During a press conference the group said eleven-point-five million dollars in loosely defined grants is moving through the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and the Department of Human Services so far this fiscal year.
The group featuring members of the Legislative Audit Commission are demanding the governor be transparent about how the money is being spent.
A bipartisan Legislative Audit Commission relaxed their investigation into Quinn’s NRI program at the request of the US Attorney in Springfield citing their ongoing investigation of the program.
