May 9, 2014 Press Release
The Federal Student Loan Refinancing Act would call on the Secretary of Education to automatically lower all federal student loans to 4 percent – which is near the current 30-year mortgage rate. Refinancing allows the borrower to replace his or her existing debt with a new loan at a lower interest rate. This means that borrowers will reduce the cost of their debt and free up income for purchases that will create a ripple effect on the economy.

We need to be giving innovators, entrepreneurs, and businesses the certainty and incentives needed for them to invest in starting and expanding their ventures here in the United States.

“Our unanimous approval last night is the first step toward our 53rd straight military budget, one that will expand and upgrade our military’s technological capabilities, diversify its energy portfolio, improve readiness, and protect the country’s promises to our soldiers and veterans. At the same time we serve our national security, we are also creating jobs in San Diego, since our economy is so closely linked to our military bases and our private sector military technology. I am glad to have developed such a strong working relationship with Susan Davis (CA-53) and Duncan Hunter (CA-50), the other San Diegans serving on our committee, who were integral to our bipartisan success.”
