"Recently, a new bill has been brought to Congress labeled “Affordable College Textbook Act.” According to ATTN:, this bill calls for the development of open textbooks. An open textbook is released to the public with an open license. That means anyone can access the textbook online, or download it, for free. Having a physical copy of the book would be $20. This bill would allow students to have access to the materials they need without going broke."
