Legislature to put subpoena power in hands of Monegan investigators

Preparation is nearly complete for the legislative investigation into the events surrounding the firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan and whether there was any abuse of power leading up to his dismissal. Senate Judiciary Chairman Hollis French says he anticipates choosing and hiring a field investigator later this week. French says the investigation will be thorough – with the committee having the power to subpoena testimony if needed.
