S. 1203 — The What You Can Do For Your Country Act

Summary: On April 17, 2019, PAEA submitted a letter to the offices of Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Tim Kaine endorsing the aims of S. 1203, which seeks to rectify the bureaucratic deficiencies that have limited the scope of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. By expanding eligibility to all federal loan and repayment borrowers and implementing a partial loan forgiveness option with reduced commitment terms, the bill would make PSLF a more accessible alternative to financing PA education.
