How a new credit card law affects you and on-campus healthcare for high schoolers

. -

Greetings from the WBRC Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at some of the stories we're following for you this evening.

Credit card chips

Oct. 1 is a big day for new state budgets, some company financial years and this year, your credit card. Starting Thursday retailers have to be able to read those new credit cards with security chips in them, or they will be liable for any fraudulent transactions on your cards some identity thief might try to do. If you don’t have one of these new cards yet (or even if you do) tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 9 Sherea Harris is looking at how this big change may keep your money safer.

Health clinic at school

Should high schoolers be able to get healthcare on-campus? On WBRC FOX6 News at 10, Josh Gauntt is digging into a plan to build a standalone clinic on one Tuscaloosa County High school campus.

Those stories and more beginning at 9 on WBRC FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
