BOSTON — Senator Eric P. Lesser and Representative Natalie Higgins will unveil their Student Loan Bill of Rights ahead of the Senate vote on the bill on Wednesday.
Designed to protect student borrowers from predatory student loan servicing companies, S.2380, An Act establishing a student loan bill of rights, empowers state officials to investigate servicers and take action against those that violate the state’s banking and consumer protection laws.
Sen. Lesser and Rep. Higgins will discuss further measures in the bill and take questions. They will be joined by students and organizers from Public Higher Education Network of Massachusetts (PHENOM), who can speak to the bill’s importance from a personal perspective.
