Cost of College Education

We must work to bring down the cost of education to ensure that students are not priced out of attending college or saddled with years of debt after graduation. Congress must make student loan funding a top priority and that is why I am a strong supporter of Pell grants, reduced interest rates for Federal Direct Stafford Loans, and other student loan opportunities.  In addition, we need to increase available grants and create more programs to help individuals work off their loans.
