CONGRESSMAN RUBÉN HINOJOSA VOTES TO SUPPORT TRANSPORTATION BILL THAT INCLUDES KEEPING STUDENT LOAN INTEREST RATES DOWN, AN I-69 SIGN DESIGNATION FOR SOUTH TEXAS, AND THE EXTENSION OF THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM

Congressman Rubén Hinojosa (D-TX-15) voted to support legislation that will extend federal highway programs through 2014, a low interest rate on student loans for one year, and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) for five years. The portion of the bill that includes student loans will keep the 3.4 percent loan rate for students through July 1, 2013.

Under current law, the rate would have doubled to 6.8 percent on July 1, 2012 for 7.4 million college students.
