Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration has released thousands of emails to a panel of lawmakers investigating his troubled anti-violence program. Members of the Legislative Audit Commission received an estimated 2,000 emails linked to the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative on Friday.

That commission is expected to discuss the e-mails during hearings about the $54.5 million program scheduled today and tomorrow in Chicago. The commission is also expected to discuss a federal request to suspend interviews of those connected to the program for 90 days.

That request came after federal subpoenas were issued for emails of top officials involved in the program. Some of those same officials were also subpoenaed by the commission.
