With the 2018 Illinois general session approaching, the legislative drafting period is starting to wrap up for state lawmakers. 95th District Representative Avery Bourne says her goals for the upcoming session include some tweaks to school funding reform and empowering coal power plants in downstate Illinois.
Bourne says she wants to even the playing field for all Illinois coal-fired power plants.
Bourne says the new year will also bring new laws to the state, which will benefit many residents.
Bourne says she hopes the new legislative session will bring more bipartisan work to help the state improve its financial footing while improve the lives of its residents.
