Schaer & Jasey Efforts Influence Change in HESAA PolicyHESAA Vote to Approve Repayment Assistance Program Follows Lawmakers' Call for Reform
Following the reform efforts of Assembly Democrats Gary S. Schaer and Mila Jasey, the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority on Wednesday voted to establish a program that will facilitate student loan repayment for New Jersey residents.
"This is a step in the right direction that will help prevent future generations from falling into the downward spiral of student debt that keeps many young adults from pursuing marriage, homeownership and entrepreneurship in New Jersey," said Schaer, chair of the Assembly Budget Committee.
