§ 721. Pricing transparency. 1. To ensure pricing transparency, all
publishers of college textbooks shall, on request, make readily

the college bookstore that would offer the products to students.

2. For purposes of this section, the term "products" means all
versions of a textbook or set of textbooks, except custom textbooks or
special editions of textbooks, available in the subject area for which a
prospective adopter is teaching a course, including supplemental
materials, both when sold together or separately from a textbook.
