A 1.5 trillion dollar tax bill put together by Republican lawmakers is facing a new hurdle after Senator Marco Rubio of Florida said he would vote no on the bill unless it included a greater expansion of the child tax credit.

The New York Times reports that lawmakers are also facing “continuing questions about how the bill will be paid for and how much of the benefits will flow to low- and middle-income people versus corporations.”

Senate and House lawmakers had agreed on a merged version of their tax bills earlier this week and hoped to vote and have a bill ready for President Trump to sign by Christmas.

It’s been a bad year for fraternities.

A Radford statement said “any Radford students found in violation of the Standards of Student Conduct will be held fully accountable. Possible sanctions may include warning, probation, suspension or dismissal.”

As the semester comes to a close, you might find yourself with a stack of textbooks left over from classes that you’ve already completed and no longer want to think about.

Given that textbooks can take up a lot of space, and are of considerably lesser value once you’ve completed the course that you needed them for, the end of the semester is the perfect time to get rid of them.

Uloop’s  Christine Ascher has put together 5 simple ways to unload your books and make some extra cash. 

 


Friday. Winter break. Finals are over. Breathe. Yes!
