WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-03) issued a statement following the Biden administration’s announcement to pause student loan repayments until May 2022:
“Granting further extension of the student loan repayment pause is welcome news and I applaud the Biden Administration’s decision to extend relief for student loan borrowers as COVID-19 cases surge in Arizona and across the United States. I appreciate the steps the Biden administration has taken to revamp existing programs and look forward to further action on this important issue.
The ultimate financial relief for working people families is student loan forgiveness which the Biden administration has promised but has yet to deliver. Until President Biden forgives student loans, we will never fully be able to Build Back Better.”
