Two Kentucky lawmakers are co-sponsoring a bill designed to help with supplies for the state's elementary, secondary, and post-secondary students.

Representative Julie Adams of Louisville and Donna Mayfield of Winchester are behind the legislation.

It seeks to create a sales tax-free shopping weekend shortly before the start of school. Those items including clothing up to $100, school supplies, including those needed for art class, calculators, glue and related items, computers up to a sale price of $1,000, and computer supplies, i.e. software, printers up to a purchase price of $500.

If passed and signed into law the bill would go into effect in time for the start of school in the fall of 2012.
