Senator Wyden Talks Tuition Relief with OSU Cascades Students

Posted By on Thu, Oct 27, 2016 at 12:04 PM

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden met with students at OSU-Cascades today to discuss growing concerns over high tuition costs and student loans.  The Senator said he supports legislation to freeze college tuition by providing incentives to states to do so.  He is also looking at legislation to allow students to repay their loans by re-directing debt payments to their retirement plans instead.  

Below is a short video of the meeting with the Senator's comments.
