Va. House Democrats highlight bills aimed at ‘supporting working people’

Del. Marcia Price (D-Newport News) helped introduce legislation that would help Virginians re-finance their student loans.  It’s something she knows a lot about. At 37 years old, she still owes more than $90,000 for her education. “I am not alone. There are over one million borrowers in Virginia and HB 615 could help at least 630,000 of them,” said Price.

Price went to Spelman College in Atlanta and completed two graduate programs at Howard University in D.C.  She said the trade-off was stunted personal economic growth.  “I can personally attest to feeling the pressure of not holding up to my family’s legacy of generational wealth. By the time my mother and grandmother and grandfather were my age, they had houses, they had property they owned that could be passed on to the next generation,” she said. Price said money that would normally go to a mortgage instead goes to student loan payments.

House Democrats roll out legislation to support working people

Delegates Marcia Price and Delegate Debra Rodman discussed their bill to set up a Virginia Student Loan Refinance Authority, this will ease the economic insecurity that faces many Virginians.
“When we talk about the New Virginia Economy, there is a segment of Virginians that find it hard to fully participate in this economy because of the crushing burden of student loan debt,” said Delegate Price. “As of 2017, over one million Virginia borrowers owed over $30 billion on student loans, an amount that is growing each day”.
Delegate Debra Rodman, a college professor, spoke passionately about her students, “I see the burden of debt in the eyes of my students as they strive to achieve the American Dream…This is not a partisan issue this is an American issue. The future of our commonwealth depends on how accessible and affordable education is for all of us.” (Click for the full article)

Price Submits Budget Amendments

RICHMOND, VA – Del. Marcia “Cia” Price (95th District) today submitted three proposed budget amendments for the 2018 Legislative Session. Budget amendments are how legislators can ask for additional funding for initiatives important to them. Price’s first would add funding for the City of Newport News to help convert the Summer Training and Enrichment Program to run all year and potentially become a model program for the Commonwealth. Over the last four years, Newport News has funded STEP to match 16-24 year olds with local businesses and organizations for summer on-the-job workforce training. This employment opportunity has been invaluable in improving the quality of life of the participant and preventing youth gang and gun violence. Expanding the program to run all year would be an even bigger impact on economic development and public safety.
