CALIFORNIA COLLEGE DEMOCRATS RALLY BEHIND TEXTBOOK AFFORDABILITY LEGISLATION
“With no end in sight to tuition and fee increases at California’s higher education institutions, it is refreshing to see an innovative solution on the table. The legislation will provide immediate financial relief to California’s working and middle class families and is a step in the right direction,” CCD President Paul Murre said.
The two pieces of legislation, introduced by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, will make a college education much more accessible by decreasing the rising costs of college textbooks. In a time of rising fees for a college education, these two bills are a significant remedy that will greatly cut costs for students.
