Republican legislative leaders called for further investigation into Governor Pat Quinn’s “MGT Push” prisoner early-release program, the Governor announced more budget cuts, and Illinois parents geared up for a sales tax holiday on school goods, according to Senator Tim Bivins.

On August 5, Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont and House Republican Leader Tom Cross of Oswego announced the formation of the Illinois Joint Investigatory Panel on Early Release to resolve questions about the details and community impact of Governor Quinn’s “MGT Push” prisoner early release program.

The Panel's first meeting is scheduled from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., August 11, in Arbor Hall, 2nd Floor Auditorium, Illinois Central College North Campus, 5407 N. University, Peoria.

Senator  Bivins said lawmakers and the public have been seeking answers about “MGT Push” since December 2009, but have been unsuccessful in getting the Quinn Administration to respond." />
