June 2007

The education committees of houses of Congress passed bills to ensure that student loan borrowers have fair and realistic repayment options; to increase the value of the Pell grant; and to simplify the financial aid application process, making it easier for families to get the help they need to pay for college.

President Bush signed the bill on September 27, 2007
