State Representative Avery Bourne is hard at work trying to bring a full state budget to Illinois, but is also working on several other items to help improve live for those in her district as well as the state of Illinois. One of the recent bills she's pushed deals with electronic hunting licenses, while another looks to study various ways to burn Illinois coal in Illinois in a cheaper and more environmentally friendly manor.


Bourne shared how one bill would allow hunters in Illinois to simply bring an electronic copy of their hunting licenses with them when they go out, allowing a convenient way to show officials that they're hunting legally.



Another bill would form a group that would take a closer look at how Illinois could burn it's abundant coal resources in a manor that would be both cost effective, and more environmentally friendly.
