Some members of the Illinois House are looking to bring down House Bill 40 before it becomes law. The house will take up House Bill 4114 during the upcoming veto session. The bill would prevent state tax dollars from funding “elective” abortions.
95th District State Representative Avery Bourne says the bill is modeled after the federal Hyde Amendment.
Bourne says she’s disappointed the governor chose to sign House Bill 40, but now the legislature can take action to stop it.
The Illinois House is scheduled to reconvene for the fall veto session on Tuesday.
