Congressman Rigell, Wolf to Stop Student Loan Rate Spike
On June 18th at 10 a.m. EST, Virginia Young Democrats and student leaders from Old Dominion University and George Mason University will hold a press call urging Congressmen Frank Wolf and Congressman Scott Rigell to stop putting the broken politics of Washington over Virginia students and their families.
If Congress fails to act, loan rates will double for students across the Commonwealth on July 1st, and after that it could get worse: under the “Students Pay More Act” supported by Congressman Rigell, Virginia students and their families could see their loan rates spike as high as 8.5 percent.
Old Dominion University student leader Terrell Kingwood;
George Mason University student leader Matthew Bell.
