Second and Sixth District Republicans Vote against Making College
Education More Affordable for Minnesotans
St. Paul, MN (July 12, 2007)
U.S. Representatives Michele Bachmann and John Kline once again sided against Minnesota students and their families Wednesday when they voted against the College Cost Reduction Act (H.R. 2669), which would ease the cost of a college education for middle-class and working families.
This is not the first time Representatives Bachmann and Kline have stood against Minnesotans’ attempting to improve their lives through higher education: InJanuary, both also voted against the College Student Relief Act (H.R. 5), which gradually reduces interest rates on student loans. Both bills overwhelmingly passed the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.Minnesota college graduates’ average debt load already ranks among the highest in the country. The College Cost Reduction Act would save the average Minnesotacollege student over $4,000 in interest repayment, and would increase the size of Pell Grants for as many as 86,000 more students.
