The Louisiana House voted 87-0 for legislation that would allow school boards to sell used computers to students or their parents or guardians.
“I’m just trying to help the kids,” said state Rep. Edward J. Price, D-Gonzales. Price said school boards would set the rules for the program.
Price, a former long-time Ascension Parish School Board member, said the computers get dilapidated in about four years and are in need of replacement. But the computers could still be left in service, Price said. The computers would be “wiped clean before they are let go,” he said.
House Bill 1109 now heads to the Senate for debate
