Bill would restrict credit card solicitation to college students

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A proposal that would restrict credit card solicitations to college students while they are on campus is moving in the House.

The bill sponsored by Speaker Pro Tempore Lois DeBerry, a Memphis Democrat, unanimously passed the House Education Committee on Wednesday.

It would require institutions of higher learning that provide directories of their students to allow them to indicate that they don't want to be solicited.

The companion bill was deferred in the Senate Education Committee on Wednesday.
