SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois State Board of Elections has ordered Auditor General Frank Mautino to provide more detail about his campaign spending as a state legislator.

The board decided Monday to set July 1 as the deadline for the Democrat from Spring Valley to explain campaign expenditures which are the subject of a citizen’s complaint.

Assistant Executive Director Jim Tenuto says staff will review the amended reports to determine whether further action is required.

Mautino was a state representative for 24 years before he was appointed auditor general last fall.

The board narrowed its review to two areas. They include a bank’s campaign “reimbursements” without explanation and hundreds of thousands of dollars for gas and repairs at a single service station.

Mautino issued a statement that he will meet the deadline.
