Please Contact These Legislators Re: Bill #S2573

Below is a post from a friend of the growing movement for HESAA reform. Please follow up with these people who pretend to "represent" us. If they don't hear from you the money from HESAA will continue to deafen them to our plight! Drop what you are doing and hit them up now!

I hope all is well. I wanted to update you all on the status of the bill regarding income based repayment and loan rehabilitation. Unfortunately, it seems that the bill is not moving along like it should be and there is a possibility that it will not.

Now, I know it is exhausting and upsetting to hear this news as we were all hoping for light at the end of the tunnel. This bill is extremely important and necessary for most of us and if this bill is not passed, there will not be any relief for current borrowers. 

I am asking you today to reach out to the primary sponsors via phone to question them and ask them why this bill is not moving along and to tell them you are in dire need of relief. They need to know that this bill is of an urgent matter.

I know it might be difficult as office hours are typical business hours and it might not be easy for some to make these phone calls but every call will make a difference. They need to feel pressured to helping the majority. This truly is the last chance at reviving this bill. As time moves forward, there is a lesser and lesser chance that this bill will be voted on. 

Legislators are not writing new bills to help NJCLASS loan borrowers; therefore, this bill is the only bill that will help us. 

If you receive any news or information from your conversations with the offices, please let me know or if you need help on knowing what to ask please feel free to reach out to me.

  1. I called all 7 representatives and asked for a fast tracking of passage of these two bills. I was told a vote on these will come soon. Passage cant happen soon enough for us.
