" In about 40 minutes Wednesday, the Texas Senate Higher Education Committee unanimously passed five bills on various topics and left one pending about physician education loans.
Senate bill 810 by Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, was passed. The bill is also about open educational resources and was previously discussed at a March 29 committee meeting.
Open educational resources are teaching materials. The bill would make these resources more available to help accommodate for textbook costs. In the amended, or committee substitute version of SB 810, Kolkhorst said the amount of funds received by faculty would be limited."
