The Congressman’s Office issued the following statement, prior to the Press Conference:  Recently members of Congress and Senators introduced a resolution supporting access to a debt-free college education and highlighting the consequences of high student loan debt.

The cost of higher education has reached record highs – making it impossible for working and middle class families in Arizona and across the nation to afford a college education.

In addition to Congressman Gallego and Rich Nickel, the following Arizona students were also invited to speak:

  • Isaac Miller, Arizona State University, Tempe Campus, Student Body President
  • Corina Tapscott, Arizona State University, Phoenix Downtown Campus, Incoming Student Government President
