AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Two LePage administration officials who balked at appearing before the Government Oversight Committee have indicated they’ll testify after receiving subpoenas.

Cynthia Montgomery, the governor’s legal counsel, and Aaron Chadbourne, a senior policy adviser, are among nine people who’ll appear before the committee next week.

The news was first reported by the Portland Press Herald.

The panel is investigating whether Gov. Paul LePage overstepped his authority in threatening to withhold state funding from a private school if it hired a political foe.

Officials at Good Will-Hinckley offered a job to House Speaker Mark Eves, then rescinded the offer. The Good Will-Hinckley operates programs for at-risk youths and runs a charter school, the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences.
