Legislation & Policy

Policy makers: those elected, NGOs, non-profits, schools, teachers, parents, and yes, even students are working toward solutions to resolve the college affordability and student debt epidemic. This page will track the proposed legislation, statuses, and provide a general description and/or relevant links and sources. (Still in progress)

Much of the information is available thanks to https://www.govtrack.us/ and Scout from the Sunlight Foundation. These sites are great for tracking legislation.
