  • Senator Stabenow Joins Senator Warren in Fight to Make College More Affordable

    U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow joined Senator Elizabeth Warren to introduce legislation that would save millions of borrowers money on their student loans.

This would save borrowers hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year.

The average debt of a recent college graduate earning a degree in Michigan is $29,583, compared to the national average of $28,400.
