Rep. Bass Reintroduces the Student Loan Fairness Act of 2017
“I’m reintroducing the Student Loan Fairness Act because student debt is not an issue that is just going to disappear overnight without a concerted effort by Congress. We need to make sure we are setting up future generations for success, not crippling debt,” Rep. Bass said. “The fact that Americans owe nearly $1.3 trillion in student loan debt is a dramatic reminder that student debt is an ever expanding impediment on the young graduates in our country. If advancing one’s education is the answer for ensuring success within our country, students should not leave college with the same amount of debt as a mortgage would cost. This load is too great for our nation’s graduates to bear.”
