Students will have to pay interest on loans while still in school. Our Congressman, Chris Smith, served a Punishing Blow to Students. Yesterday Congressman Chris Smith, your Congressman, voted YES on the Ryan budget. The budget Smith voted on would reduce grants for Pell by $90 billion. University students would start being charged interest on their loans while still in school.
. Smith also refused to address interest rates for student debt. = Local Government is Government. You control your destiny by voting in LOCAL Elections and voting for Congressman that share your values and struggles. Congressman Smith is up for re-election in November. Get out and VOTE.
