DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A legislative oversight committee will investigate a program administered by the Iowa attorney general’s office.

Rep. Kevin Koester, a Republican from Ankeny who chairs the House Government Oversight Committee, says Wednesday the panel will review some of the practices of the office’s Crime Victim Assistance Division.

According to a news release, the committee will look at the funding that goes to programs around the state that assist crime victims.

The committee will meet Sept. 8 to question staff from the attorney general’s office. Geoff Greenwood, a spokesman for Democratic Attorney General Tom Miller, says the program was managed responsibly and the office looks forward to discussing operations with the committee.
