Bourne added, “Illinois House Republicans are focused on enacting a truly balanced budget, enhancing our state’s business climate to create good-paying jobs, reforming our political system with nonpartisan redistricting reform, providing property tax relief, and making the public pension systems viable for state employees and taxpayers alike. I am ready to work across the aisle with newly elected leaders to tackle these issues, find areas where we agree, and continue to fight for my constituents and the people of Central Illinois.”

Bourne has served in the Illinois House since 2015.
