With the lame duck session taking place next week, Avery Bourne is hoping to see some transparency towards the public for what goals the legislature has for 2021. The state has a nearly $4 billion budget deficit and many social issues are expected to be brought up. Bourne says it’s all about accountability.
Bourne says that she hopes that the Democrats don’t try to push a tax increase but instead look at cutting spending.
The last time legislature was able to meet was in May of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
