For the first time in her term as a Republican member of the Illinois House of Representatives Avery Bourne has seen a budget turned in on time and passed through the house.
Bourne represents the 95th district. She says there was concern that a bill would be voted on last minute and forced to be passed as there would be no other viable option on the table.
Bourne says the budgetary year was started this year with four priorities. One of the big ones was this bill needed to be balanced.
Bourne says this bill will get the job done, however in her mind she would have gone a slightly different way.
Bourne appeared as a guest on the NewsTalk WTIM Morning Show.
