IHSA Gears Up For Second Hearing

(Bloomington, IL) -- IHSA officials are gearing up for another round of questioning from lawmakers about how they run their agency. But, Executive Director Marty Hickman says they won't get a chance to have any of their witnesses testify. Hickman sat on the hot seat for hours fielding questions at the last hearing back in May, and by the time it wrapped, it still wasn't clear exactly what lawmakers were fishing for. State reps were originally talking about taking over the agency, and putting all of the high school sporting events under the state's watch. But they've seemed to back off of that plan. The next hearing is being held in Chicago next Tuesday. Hickman says they've been told that none of their witnesses will be allowed to speak.
