Senator Mike Michot of Lafayette wants public schools to start using Internet-based textbooks.

Michot says he will ask the Senate staff to look into the possibilities and costs of replacing paper textbooks with books that are available to students using computers only.

He also says the idea is an example of how state government could work smarter with a tight budget.
