Congressman Joe Garcia Once Again Reached Across the Aisle to Keep Student Loans Affordable for South Florida's Middle Class

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Joe Garcia once again reached across the aisle today in an effort to find solutions and prevent the doubling of student loan interest rates on July 1st.

Congressman Garcia issued the following statement:

"South Florida's families sent me to Congress to solve problems and support ideas based on their merits, not political parties. Unless Congress acts, interest rates on student loans will double in July and make life harder for middle class families who are already struggling to make ends meet. That is why I reached across the aisle today to support the Smarter Solutions for Students Act. While I support extending the current low rate of 3.4%, this bill will prevent student loan rates from doubling in July."
