Petri Introduces Bill To Move to Full Income Contingent Repayment

17 December 2012 30 views No Comment

In an effort to reduce complexity, improve default rates, and increase the effectiveness of federal student loan subsidies, Rep. Tom Petri (WI-R) introduced the Earnings Contingent Education Loans Act of 2012 yesterday that would replace and restructure Federal Direct Student loans. The new loans would be unsubsidized and would require income-contingent repayment (ICR) for all borrowers through a system of payroll withholdings from earnings through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), similar to federal tax withholdings.
