August 22, 2013
Press Release

Washington – Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement today on President Barack Obama's remarks at SUNY Buffalo:

"I applaud the President for refocusing attention on college affordability, which is quickly turning into a crisis for middle class families and placing the American dream further out of reach for our young people. I would also like to recognize the leadership of Representative Joe Courtney, who is a tireless advocate on behalf of our students and families, and recently pushed Congress to lower student loan interest rates ahead of the new school year. The fight to improve college affordability is far from over and should be a top priority for our nation; I look forward to working with the President and Rep. Courtney as we take on this challenge."
