Congressman Rick Larsen Visits EvCC - Helene Martin, the Clipper

Congressman Larsen also sympathized with students’ concerns over steep textbook costs. “It’s not just the hardbacks but also the electronic textbooks… they found a way to charge you even more. There’s no recycling or reuse and they take advantage of that,” he said.  When someone mentioned that professors sometimes require students to buy books that they only read a chapter of, Congressman Larsen added: “I can speculate that they put the cost on you instead of getting permission to just copy the one chapter which would come out of the pocket of the professor.”
