Legislators to consider TOPS bills

Legislators are expected to take up a number of bills Wednesday that would make changes to the state’s popular college scholarship program known as TOPS.

State lawmakers have long talked about making changes to a program that has grown steadily from about $40 million in the late 1990s to $217 million this year.
