Congresswoman Terri Sewell, D-Alabama, released the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s announcement to provide student loan relief to middle and working class families who need it most:
“A good education should be a ticket to the middle class, but across the nation, the soaring cost of college has made it near impossible for many Alabamians to pursue the American dream,” Sewell said.
“Today’s announcement is welcome news for so many Alabamians who are being crushed by student loan debt. This targeted economic relief will provide peace of mind for those who need it most. I’m grateful to have a President who follows through on his promises and looks out for the needs of our students and working families.”
