Minnesota schools would be required to provide students with free access to pads and tampons under a new legislative proposal, which asks state lawmakers to increase school operational funding by $2 per-student to cover the expense. 

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Sandra Feist, DFL-New Brighton, passed the House Education Policy Committee on Wednesday and will be sent to the Education Finance Committee next. 

"We ensure that students have toilet paper, paper towels, soap and bandaids and we should ensure that students have period products as well," Feist said.
