College Textbooks

TWO STATE OFFICIALS ARE CONSIDERING A RESOLUTION STUDYING THE FACTORS LEADING TO INCREASING TEXTBOOK PRICES.
STATE REPRESENTATIVE RICK NELSON OF MIDDLESBORO, AND SENATOR KEN WINTERS OF MURRAY WERE PROMPTED INTO LOOKING INTO THE MATTER AFTER NELSON'S DAUGHTER'S COLLEGE BOOK BILLS COST MORE THAN 500-DOLLARS.
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NINE" IS THE STUDY, WHICH WOULD BE COMPLETED BY DECEMBER IF APPROVED, AND WOULD EXAMINE WHY TEXTBOOK COMPANIES PRODUCE SO MANY NEW EDITIONS EVERY YEAR AND WHY RESALE PRICES ARE SO LOW.
WINTERS IS CHAIRMAN OF THE SENATE EDUCATION COMMITTEE.
HE SAYS HE PLANS TO TALK TO EDUCATORS ABOUT THE DRIVING FORCES IN THE COLLEGE AND SECONDARY BOOK MARKET.
