INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:

  • “It is our duty as legislators to protect the success of our students as they pursue higher education,” McBath said. “I have heard from too many young people in my district who were defrauded by schools like Argosy University. Our kids should be leaving school ready for success, not paying for the misconduct of predatory institutions. It is past time we held the Department of Education accountable in ensuring the wellbeing of our students.” (Source: Rep. McBath, Press Release, 7/10/19)
