College scholarship bill passes in Missouri Senate
Fri, 10 May 2013 13:17:01 GMT — The Missouri Senate has approved legislation raising the attendance requirements for students eligible for state-sponsored college scholarships. Under the legislation, students would have to be continuously enrolled for a certain number of credit hours per semester to continue receiving state aid. It would affect recipients of Bright Flight, Access Missouri and A+ scholarships. Sponsoring Republican Sen. David Pearce, of Warrensburg, says the requirements will provide an incentive for students to finish their degrees on time. The bill passed the Senate 31-0 Thursday and heads now to the House. Lawmakers adjourn May 17.
