CHICAGO -- Gov. Pat Quinn says he has no intention of testifying in front of a legislative panel regarding his failed neighborhood recovery initiative.

State Representative Matt Murphy suggested this week that the governor testify.

Gov. Quinn says he addressed the program's problems, including dismantling the agency that ran the program.
