Who Represents Me In Oregon?
Dear Senator Frederick and Representative McLain,
The high cost of textbooks is a barrier to Oregon students completing their
college or university degree. HB 2214 continues to fund textbook
affordability and open education in Oregon through a program that has a
track record of helping students save millions of dollars on textbooks.
Whether we keep funding at current levels, grow the program, or dream big,
the funding should be part of CSL so that we know that this important work
can continue past 2021. I support growing the program as outlined in the
budget model: https://tinyurl.com/hb2214.
