Governor Signs Bills Aimed At Helping College Students



Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Thursday, September 27, 2012
One bill is aimed at addressing concerns of ever-increasing student fees at colleges and universities with little advance notice.
 
Governor Brown signed legislation that's intended to improve communication between UC Regents and students --- ideally to give families more time to financially prepare.
 
And because the cost of textbooks can be high, the Governor signed legislation that would set up open source digital textbook library. Students could access books for free, or print them for 20-dollars.
 
Another bill signed into law supporters called the "Student Athlete Bill of Rights."
 
Under that bill, students who lose an athletic scholarship because of injury would receive an academic scholarship instead.
 
And low-income student-athletes would get help paying for health insurance premiums.
