Students in a political science class at California Polytechnic State University embarked on an unusual challenge last year. They drafted legislation to see if they could get it passed by the state Legislature.┬áThe bill became law this past summer. In the process, the students learned how lawmaking works and got invaluable experience on using the political process to push for change — even if it’s only incremental change — on a higher ed issue close to their hearts.┬áThe students in the California Bill Project class set out to write a bill that would benefit fellow California students but not cost the state any money.
