AFR Supports Rep. Madeline Dean’s Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act

Americans for Financial Reform’s Senior Policy Analyst Alexis Goldstein released the following statement on Congresswoman Madeline Dean’s Amendment to H.R. 6395, the FY21 National Defense Authorization Act:

“Rep. Dean’s amendment would put borrowers and their families on stronger financial footing and accelerate the economic recovery. Providing up to $10,000 in immediate assistance to pay down a private student loan offers much-needed and long-term relief to the 6 million private student loan borrowers who were left out of the CARES Act entirely.”

The full U.S. House of Representatives will vote on this amendment today.
