Subpoena Possible in NRI Investigation

Subpoena Possible in NRI Investigation

Illinois lawmakers will decide Monday whether to subpoena a former official in Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration to answer questions about the Democrat’s anti-violence program.

Bloomington Republican Sen. Jason Barickman is co-chairman of the Legislative Audit Commission and a member of the subcommittee that will meet Monday. He says the panel will vote on whether to compel Barbara Shaw to answer questions about the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative.

Shaw is retired director of the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority, which took on Quinn’s $55 million anti-violence program in 2010. Auditor General William Holland earlier this year found the program was so hastily implemented and poorly managed that thousands of dollars can’t be accounted for.

Shaw’s attorney John Theis says if Shaw is subpoenaed, she will respond.
