Today’s bill harnesses the power of technology and innovation to bring college within reach for more and more students. The act creates a competitive grant program for colleges and universities to develop, review, and adopt open source textbooks, placing the highest priority on pilot programs that generate significant cost savings for students.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) delays in implementing the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act have put Indiana lives at risk and cost the country $22 million in economic costs, according to a new report by INPIRG.
This report offers a snapshot look, from October 2012 to October 2013, at multistate foodborne illness outbreaks identified by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Failures in the rules and processes that protect our food supply have led to numerous serious outbreaks over the past year that left many Americans sickened and at least 2 dead. The economic cost of just the multistate outbreaks caused by food products recalled over the past 12 months comes to more than $22 million.
While experts work around the clock to fix the problems with the federal health insurance marketplace website, INPIRG is reaching out to students in Indiana with tips on checking out their coverage options in other ways.
