There could be discussion about eliminating book rental.

Indiana is about the only state that still charges such a fee.

State representative Jim Pressel of Rolling Prairie expects it to be

talked about.......during this year's state legislative session which began today.

He says it's way too early to say what the outcome will be.......

With books being phased out to a certain extent....Pressel says a percentage of

book rental fees help pay for iPads and other technology given to students.

A lot of Hoosier families have long complained that book rental puts a squeeze on

their household finances.
