Howard called today's bipartisan agreement on student loan rates "a victory for college students and their families" while ensuring that "middle class transportation and construction jobs will not fall victim to a legislative battle that hurts our communities."

Today's compromise means that some 7 million college students will not see their education costs rise by $1,000 next year while creating or saving nearly 3 million construction and transportation jobs, including thousands here in Los Angeles.

Howard is the only candidate in this race with a proven record of reaching across the aisle to make life better for Valley residents--that's why he is the only candidate endorsed by Governor Jerry Brown, Senators Boxer and Feinstein, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa along with 24 of the 26 members of California's Democratic congressional delegation who have endorsed in this race.
