A bill sponsored by state house representative Avery Bourne to help fight the synthetic drug epidemic in Illinois is sitting on Governor Bruce Rauner’s desk. The bill would broaden the language and add to the list of what is considered a controlled substance in Illinois.
Bourne says synthetic drugs are a huge issue in our area and across the state.
Bourne says it’s an ongoing battle to keep bath salts and synthetic drugs off the streets all over Illinois.
Bourne will also be having her traveling office hours this Tuesday, June 27th in Taylorville at Congressman Rodney Davis’ office. With the representative likely to be working in a special session in Springfield, constituents can still come talk to Bourne’s staff and have their voices heard on state and local issues.
