Rep. Quigley hopes to make online students eligible for state grants

The PLS Reporter joined Rep. Tom Quigley (R-Montgomery) to talk about his bill that would allow students enrolled in online education programs to be eligible for Pennsylvania state grants. 

Currently Pennsylvania is the only state that does not have a program like this enacted permanently, so Rep. Quigley is trying to make what is a temporary pilot program in Pennsylvania a permanent thing.
