BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF OHIO
(THE SENATE CONCURRING):


       WHEREAS, Student loan debt has reached almost $1 trillion, and continues to grow as the cost of attending colleges and universities skyrockets; and

       WHEREAS, If the Congress of the United States fails to act, more than 382,000 Ohio students will pay more to obtain a college education; now therefore be it

       RESOLVED, That we, the members of the 129th General Assembly, urge the Congress of the United States to pass S. 2343, the Stop the Student Loan Interest Rate Hike Act of 2012; and be it further

       RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit duly authenticated copies of this resolution to the President of the United States, to the President Pro Tempore and Secretary of the United States Senate, to the Speaker and the Clerk of the United States House of Representatives, to the members of the Ohio Congressional delegation, and to the news media of Ohio.
