State Representative Avery Bourne Says House Needs To Get to Work on State Budget


There's been plenty of budget discussions in Springfield however none of which that has lead to an actual, full and balanced state budget. State Representative Avery Bourne is looking to change that, but is disappointed in some of her fellow lawmakers for their inability to get things done and get the state back on track.


Representative Bourne joined the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to discuss the ongoing budget issues in Illinois, and said the situation is frustrating. Senate Republicans and Democrats have come together to put together plans for a budget, however that's not the case for the Illinois House.



Whatever the solution is for the budget impasse, it needs to address all issues, with all parties in Springfield working together.



Bourne said ultimately nobody will be completely happy with whatever compromise will be made on a budget, but that shouldn't stop the state government from working on a full state budget.
