WASHINGTON D.C. – Washington Senator Patty Murray is urging congress to act now to lower student loan interest rates.
She spoke on the Senate floor yesterday.
Murray says she has heard from Washington students struggling to pay off their college loans.
One student told her she didn’t know how she would overcome her “debt sentence.”
Federal loan interest rates of 3.4 percent expired July 1 and jumped back up to a previous 6.8 percent.
