With the State of the State Address out of the way and Governor JB Pritzker’s budget plan set, lawmakers across Illinois have been outspoken either for or against it. State Representative Avery Bourne says that as far as the State of the State goes, she was disappointed that it seems that Governor Pritzker still wants to take on COVID by himself, and not include legislators.

 

 

As far as the budget is concerned, Representative Bourne says she is disappointed that the budget isn’t balanced.

 

 

Representative Bourne believes it’s dangerous to rely on federal money for a budget without knowing you are going to get it. 

 

 

Representative Bourne says that there are lessons to be learned from the resignation of Mike Madigan from the House

floor.
