CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois lawmakers have ended a daylong hearing on Gov. Pat Quinn's troubled anti-violence program without agreement on whether to push forward.

Federal prosecutors asked the Legislative Audit Commission to wait 90 days before questioning former members of the Quinn administration over the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative begun in 2010.

The bipartisan commission agreed to hold off. But lawmakers did not agree on how long to wait.

Republicans wanted to call witnesses in October. Democrats rejected that.

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

Republicans have alleged Quinn used the $55 million program as a political slush fund to secure votes. Quinn has denied that claim.
