House Passes Democratic Bill to Create Student Loan Ombudsman

RICHMOND, Va. – The Virginia House of Delegates today passed legislationsponsored by Delegate Marcia “Cia” Price of Newport News that will create a student loan ombudsman to help Virginia borrowers navigate their repayment options.
In addition to helping to educate borrowers as to their rights and responsibilities, the Ombudsman will also develop an education course for borrowers by December of 2019.
“Too many student borrowers sign their names on the dotted line at only 18 or 19 years old without fully comprehending their rights and responsibilities associated with that debt, but also knowing that without those loans they would not be able to earn their degrees,” said Delegate Price. “We want college to be accessible to any Virginian with the dream and the drive. This bill will help Virginia borrowers stay current with their loans while protecting their financial security.”

As of 2017, about 1 million Virginians collectively owed more than $30 billion in student loan debt. Delegate Price also introduced legislation this session to help borrowers refinance their student loans. That bill died on party lines.

After lifetime of achievement, former VCU provost Grace Harris dies

During her nearly 50 years with VCU, she served as a professor, provost, dean and acting president. In addition to the leadership institute, the school has named for Dr. Harris a scholarship for incoming freshmen to the School of Social Work and a building on its Monroe Park Campus.
“Dr. Harris used her lifetime of groundbreaking service to help cultivate and elevate emerging leaders,” Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., said in a statement. “Her contributions have benefited VCU and Richmond as well as schools and communities throughout the commonwealth.”
On the floor of the Virginia House of Delegates on Tuesday, Del. Marcia Price, D-Newport News, called Dr. Harris a “giant in education and social work” and noted that many lawmakers might know her as the sister of former Del. Mamye BaCote.
“She was a force to be reckoned with and was always so full of energy,” Price said as she asked that the House adjourn in Dr. Harris’ honor.

An in-state tuition cap? House bill advances saying colleges can't raise rates

Two days after a part of Gov. Ralph Northam’s higher education agenda made it out of subcommittee, a Republican-led committee overwhelmingly approved it. House Bill 1138 from Del. Marcia Price, D-Newport News, would create the Office of the Qualified Education Loan Ombudsman in an effort to help student loan borrowers.
The House Education Committee voted 17-4 on Wednesday to report and refer it to the Appropriations Committee.
The Senate version of the bill was approved by the chamber’s Education and Health Committee last week.
The office would be housed within the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.
The office’s job, according to the bill, would include helping student loan borrowers “understand their rights and responsibilities” and helping with complaints from those borrowers.
