SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — The group overseeing high school sports and extracurricular activities in Illinois will answer questions about its finances, despite its protests, which, ironically, have helped place it in front of a legislative committee.
“(It’s) suspicious,” state Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia, D-Aurora, said Monday. “Why would anybody be afraid of a House resolution and hearings? If they don’t want to come, it’s kind of interesting.”
Chapa LaVia’s resolution asks for hearings into the IHSA, but the move could open the door to a state takeover of the group.
