Investigation Into Quinn Program Stalls

(AP) Illinois lawmakers have not decided how to move forward with their investigation of Gov. Pat Quinn's anti-violence program.

Federal prosecutors are also investigating and have asked lawmakers to wait to question those involved with the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative.

The bipartisan Legislative Audit Commission could not agree Wednesday on how long to wait. Two proposals failed before the commission took a short break.

The investigation has been a focus of Republicans looking to tarnish Quinn's image as a reformer who cleaned up state government. A state audit found poor program management and misused money.

Republicans have alleged Quinn used money from the $55 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative as a political slush fund to secure votes. Quinn has denied that claim.
