Tell Senator Burr: Quit Standing in the Way of Students!

To be delivered to Senator Richard Burr (R-NC)

Petition Statement

Senator Burr: Stop standing in the way of students! Students need a solution before interest rates double on July 1—and your "fix" isn't it!

Quit stalling, come to the table, and vote on a solution that will help students and not create more debt for them!
There are currently 275 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

Senator Burr is effectively standing in the way of students who will see their student loan interest rates double on July 1st if Congress doesn't act to keep them low.

In a floor debate with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) objected to voting on a proposal that would keep interest rates low for the next two years. Instead, he's in favor of a "fix" that could see student loan interest rates skyrocket and create more debt for Americans -- much more than if student loan interest rates were allowed to double.
