WALORSKI SUPPORTS BIPARTISAN STUDENT LOAN CERTAINTY ACT OF 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) released the following statement after the House passed the Bipartisan Student Loan Certainty Act of 2013 (originally passed by the House as the Smarter Solutions for Students Act):
“As a first generation college student, I am pleased the Senate has finally joined the House to pass commonsense legislation for the sake of students and families across the nation. This compromise is very similar to measures already passed by the House in May, and I am hopeful it will be quickly signed into law by the President to make sure interest rate hikes are resolved before students start signing loan documents for fall semesters.
“It is unfair for student loan borrowers to shoulder high interest rates that discourage the pursuit of higher education and cause financial strain on families, and I applaud this bipartisan agreement to make tuition affordable.”
