Policy Title: US: New Jersey: A2809: Affordable College Textbook Act - Go to the policy

Description: Affordable College Textbook Act: This bill requires that within 180 days of the Act becoming effective, 4 year public or independent institutions of higher education, after consultation with faculty members, shall submit a plan to the Secretary of Higher Education to expand the use of open textbooks in order to achieve savings for students enrolled. This bill recognizes that open educational resources are important because they can be used freely by students, faculty, and the general public and can be used in place of traditional textbook materials, which can reduce textbook costs by 80-100%
