Senator Jon Tester Steps Up in Fight Against Student Loan Debt

June 1, 2018View for printing

U.S. Senator Jon Tester is defending the tens of thousands of Montanans with student loan debt by pushing back against the Administration's attempt to decimate one of the government's main student loan watchdogs.

Tester wrote directly to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Acting Director Mick Mulvaney after he announced plans to defang the agency's Office of Students and Young Consumers by limiting its investigative and enforcement powers and folding what's left of it into the Bureau's Office of Financial Education.

"Student loan debt across this country is hampering the middle-class and placing undue stress on students and families alike," Tester told Mulvaney. "We should be doing everything we can to make folks more informed about student loan debt and the rights they have under the law, not less."
