Democratic Trust and Young Democrats call for extension of student loan interest rates
In a letter issued last week, Brandon Jones, Executive Director of the Mississippi Democratic Trust, and Tyrone Hendrix, President of the Young Democrats of Mississippi, have called on Congress to extend the 3.4% interest rate on federal college student loans. This rate is set to double to 6.8% if Congress doesn't take action this month. The call to action was picked up by the Mississippi Press this morning. In an e-mail to Trust supporters, Jones also announced a Fall college campus tour intended to energize college Dems.
