CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois legislators are expected to decide whether to subpoena a former state official to answer questions about a troubled anti-violence program started by Gov. Pat Quinn.
A subcommittee of the Legislative Audit Commission meets Monday.
Bloomington Republican Sen. Jason Barickman is a chairman. He says the panel will vote on whether to compel Barbara Shaw to answer questions about the $55 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative.
Shaw is former director of the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority, which was responsible for the program.
Quinn announced the initiative shortly before the 2010 election. He told reporters Monday that committee members should do what they feel is right.
Auditor General William Holland has said the program was hastily implemented and poorly managed.
Shaw's attorney John Theis says if Shaw is subpoenaed, she'll respond.
