Compromise bill to provide student grants from coal money passes House

A compromise bill that would provide cash grants to students obtaining college degrees in eastern Kentucky, paid for in part with multi-county coal severance dollars, passed the House Tuesday, 89-7. House Bill 260, sponsored by Rep. Leslie Combs, D-Pikeville, and House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, would create a Kentucky Appalachian College Completion Program for students in the region. KACC grants totaling up to $6,000 per academic year would be available for students attending a regional nonprofit, independent college or university like the University of Pikeville, while grants totaling up to $2,000 per academic year would be available for students attending a regional public university extension campus, or regional education center like the University Center of the Mountains in Hazard.
