New Legislation Could Cut Costs for College Students

COLUMBUS (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Legislation was introduced to the State House earlier today that would exempt college textbooks from a sales tax.

If passed the bill would provide financial relief for students who are already dealing with the rising costs of higher education.
