In Case You Missed It: Editorial Board Lauds Aguilar Bill ‘Sensible Easing of College Debt Load’
Last week, the Los Angeles News Group Editorial Board authored an opinion article in support of Representative Pete Aguilar’s latest bill, the Grace Period Alleviation (GPA) Act. The editorial praised Rep. Aguilar’s college affordability bill, calling it, “…a sensible approach to easing the debt burden on recent college graduates.”
The bill would support recent graduates by extending their loan repayment grace period, eliminating interest payments during the grace period for students with subsidized loans, and allowing students to refinance their loans under certain circumstances. The editorial can be read in full here.
