During a stop today at RIT, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer announced his support for legislation to kill a rise in student-loan interest rates. On July 1, interest rates on federally subsidized Stafford loans will double from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent, unless Congress takes action to block the increase. Joined by RIT President Bill Destler, Schumer addressed students from RIT and other area colleges in the Fireside Lounge.
