Illinois Republicans say they want to continue a legislative investigation into a mismanaged anti-violence program.
That goes against the wishes of the federal government.
The U.S. Department of Justice asked Illinois state lawmakers to postpone their hearings on the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative.
Governor Pat Quinn’s advisors who ran the anti-violence program have been subpoenaed by a legislative committee looking into why it was so poorly managed.
Federal prosecutors have also issued subpoenas related to the program.
