WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 1911, the Smarter Solutions for Students Act:
"As we look to a future of American competitiveness and ingenuity that will spur economic growth, House Republicans voted today to give students all across this country greater certainty as they enter the workforce and look for jobs. The commonsense Smarter Solutions for Students Act will remove politics from student loans and give students a long-term solution as they pursue their careers. In an economy that is deeply rooted in education and innovation, I'm proud Republicans have taken the lead to help America's students find jobs and seek greater educational opportunities across the board."
