(Sacramento) -- Assemblymember Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) believes in the Cal Grant program and she's introduced legislation to make sure as many students as possible have the opportunity to use the financial aid program to help them pay for college. Assembly Bill 1241 would open the application window for Cal Grants wider by extending the number of years a student is eligible to apply. Assemblymember Weber says the current eligibility requirement for Cal Grants penalizes low income students who are not able to go to college immediately after high school graduation.
