Kline Statement on Obama Proposal to Address College Costs
WASHINGTON, D.C., August 22, 2013
House Committee on Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-MN) issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s proposal to address rising college costs:
The federal government, states, and institutions have a shared responsibility to help rein in college costs. Earlier this month, I was pleased to join my House and Senate colleagues as the president signed into law bipartisan legislation that lowers loan interest rates for millions of students. This new law illustrates the progress we can make on behalf of American families when we work together to craft smart policies, and I hope to build upon this success as we work toward the shared goal of ensuring more students have access to an affordable higher education.
