Congresswoman DeGette Visits CU Denver to Discuss Student Loan Affordability
On April 7, Congresswoman Diana DeGette held an event at CU Denver on the issue of student loan affordability. Students and staff attended, as well as recent graduates. Congresswoman DeGette heard about attendees’ personal experiences with student loans, and she discussed her support for recently-introduced legislation – Bank on Student Emergency Loan Refinancing Act of 2015 (H.R.1434) – which, if passed, would allow borrowers with high interest rates on existing student loans in both the public and private markets to refinance these existing loans to lower interest rates.
