Rep. Joe Wilson Applauds Passage of Bill Enhancing Student Financial Counseling

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Joe Wilson (SC-02), Vice Chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, applauded the House passage of H.R. 1635 - Empowering Students Through Enhanced Financial Counseling Act:

A strong academic foundation paves the way for life-long success. Unfortunately, Americans currently hold more than $1.4 trillion in student loan debt, in part due to the lack of critical information provided to students about the long-term burden of unmanageable debt. By implementing annual financial counseling, our students can feel confident in their decisions to achieve a college or graduate degree. I would like to thank Education and Workforce Chair Virginia Foxx and Rep. Brett Guthrie for their leadership on this issue.”
