Quotes

...important decisions a young person can make, and for most, the decisions will have a lasting impact on their lives for many years," said Tipton. "this legislation will empower students and their parents to make the best possible decision by ensuring that they have access to clear and accurate information on total costs of the program from start to finish and the best financing options available to meet the needs of their unique situation. with this information in hand, students will be in a much better position to choose the program that works best for them, and repay their student loans. given the tough economy and competitive jobs market, every advantage that a student has available to them, from when they first enter college to when they graduate, is important to their overall success. "
"Today's hearing provided a necessary dialogue about whether the agriculture size standard is adequate for today's economy," said Chairman Tipton. "the wrong size standard may harm legitimately small agricultural producers by denying them access to sba programs, such as the federal contracting programs and loan programs. additionally, many federal agencies view these standards as the default small business size standard when considering their obligations under the regulatory flexibility act, which requires agencies to analyze how their rules will affect small entities. in the coming months, this committee will continue exploring solutions to the problems we heard today, including whether the current statutory standard needs be updated and the best process for doing so."
