Lipinski Statement on Student Loan Agreement

U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3) issued the following statement today on the bipartisan legislation regarding student loan interest rates that overwhelmingly passed the House:   

“I am glad that Congress finally put politics aside and did the right thing for students and their families. As a former educator, I value the importance of a college education and understand how expensive it has become. While not perfect, this legislation provides some financial certainty heading into the fall. And by doing away with the annual exercise of having Congress determine rates from year to year, it offers some certainty for student loan interest rates in subsequent years. Making college more affordable and attainable will help our nation's long-term prosperity and help many young people attain the American Dream.”
