State Representative Avery Bourne (R-Raymond) has been appointed by House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) to serve on several Key House Committees in the Illinois House. Bourne will continue to serve on the Agriculture and Conservation committee, while now also serving on four other committees in the Illinois House.
Representative Bourne said she knows how important these committees can be, especially to those in Central Illinois, and is excited to bring her voice to them.
Bourne said exactly what committees she will serve on, and said she’s particularly excited about one of those committees, since it will allow her to continue the work she’s done on the school funding reform commission.
Sometimes it can be confusing as to what a committee does, and how it affects state government. Bourne said committees help craft bills that are best for the state, by offering research and recommendations for any changes that need to be made.
Additionally, Representative Bourne was appointed to serve on the Legislative Research Unit, the chief general research agency for the Illinois General Assembly.
