Senator Boxer: Protecting Students from Loan Rate Hikes
Friday, June 29, 2012
Today, the House and Senate passed legislation that will keep interest rates on student loans from doubling from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent on July 1. This vote will save 570,000 California students from having to pay thousands more for their education. Too many students and their families are struggling with the rising costs of college, and this legislation will help keep college affordable for all our families.
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer
