Bill Raising TOPS Standards Passes House Panel

College could be a step closer to being out of reach for many students.

Baton Rouge State Rep Franklin Foil is behind the bill to require a 2.75 GPA to qualify for the scholarship funding.  One critic fears the change would greatly impact poor and minority students.
