A local area State Representative has been given an award by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce for contributions towards growth in enterprise. Representative Avery Bourne has been named a Champion of Free Enterprise for her contributions to the defense of free enterprise, and the furtherance of policies that promote job growth and economic opportunities for Illinoisans.  


The Illinois Chamber rated all members of the General Assembly based on their votes on business legislation and awards were given to members ranking 85% or higher in the last two General Assemblies.  Representative Bourne scored a rating of 95%. 


Votes are selected based on the impact on the business community and aren’t weighted. Bourne says she’s proud of her work with businesses. “I’m proud of my record of supporting policies aimed at job growth and economic opportunity in Illinois and it is a privilege to be recognized for that work. Our Illinois businesses drive our economy and create jobs in our communities.”
