By Alabama News Network

Some state lawmakers say schools should trade in textbooks for the digital versions to help save money.

State lawmakers say Alabama could save about 15,000,000 dollars by replacing school textbooks with laptops or tablet computers.

Now two Republican representatives are proposing a new bill that would authorize 100,000,000 in bonds to replace books with digital devices.

Bills have already been pre-filed in the House and Senate in preparation for the 2014 legislative session.
