With the new year on the way legislators are beginning to look at the new legislative session beginning in January. Those in Springfield are beginning to look at issues their constituents bring to their attention, and draft legislation to help fix those issues.
State Representative Avery Bourne (R-Raymond) is preparing to begin the new legislative session, and says now is the time to bring any concerns you may have to your local representatives.
Bourne and her colleagues are already drafting new legislation aimed at further improving the school funding reform bill that passed in the fall.
Along with school funding, Bourne says work is being done to hammer out a new state budget, and she's hopeful the state will avoid another budget crisis.
