  • “For many Americans, the price of a college education is too high. The average 2019 graduate owes over $37,172 in student loan debt. This mountain of debt prevents graduates from reaching important milestones such as starting a family, buying a house, or opening their own business,” Garamendi said. “This bill would help relieve some of the debt burden faced by American students and their families, while ensuring that the federal government is not making a profit on the backs of students.” (Source: Rep. Garamendi, Press Release, 3/27/19)
