State Representative Bourne Responds to President Obama’s Speech in Springfield

Following President Barack Obama’s speech to the Illinois General Assembly in Springfield on Wednesday, one central Illinois lawmaker has responded to Obama’s speech. State Representative Avery Bourne (R-Raymond) of the 95th District told Regional Radio News that she disagrees with the President in regards to his viewpoint on coal and restricting law-abiding citizens and gun owners.

Bourne has filed legislation calling on the Illinois Commerce Commission to promote and restore Illinois Coal Production, and a house resolution to protect 2nd Amendment rights. She is also sponsoring legislation to expand concealed carry for sportsmen and correctional officers. Bourne stated she agrees with the President that it is time for a change in the way legislative maps are drawn.
