Grothman Optimistic About Bi-Partisan Student Loan Changes

(Beaver Dam)  Congressman Glenn Grothman says he is eying two fixes to help address the student loan problem. Grothman, who sits on the Education and Labor Committee, says higher education facilities had the ability to sign off on student loans but the Federal Department of Education changed that policy. He says reinstating that authority would be a step in the right direction which could help institutions better guide students to loans that fit their needs. Grothman told us recently on WBEV’s Community Comment that the inability to refinance student loans also needs to be addressed. He says the government has very little reason to change the law because they make money off of students with student loan debt. Grothman say he has strong hopes of gaining bi-partisan support for the legislation.
