Student loan debt is a huge problem that continues to grow in the United States as college degrees become more essential to get jobs. Illinois’ 13th District U.S. House Rep. Rodney Davis wants to see that change.
Davis is sponsoring House Bill 795, which would encourage private businesses to aid in helping their employees pay off their student loans. Davis says he got the idea from the federal government’s program.
Davis says it’s not just an important issue for the country’s younger generation, it’s an issue for the financial stability of the country.
Davis says the student loan debt issue will be a key issue as lawmakers look at federal tax reform in the coming weeks. Davis appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
