95th District State Representative Avery Bourne is joining other House colleagues in calling on Speaker Mike Madigan to adopt a revenue estimate on which to base Illinois’ upcoming budget. The estimate is required by the state’s constitution, but Bourne says Madigan has not fulfilled this mandate in three years.
She says it is common sense to budget based on how much money lawmakers think the state will bring in.
Bourne says passing a revenue estimate should not be a partisan issue.
