State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) will hold a press conference tomorrow, Thursday, May 17 at 10:00 a.m. in the Harding Press Room at the Ohio Statehouse to discuss his proposed legislation to create the Ohio Lets Everyone Achieve Right Now (LEARN) tax credit, which would be made available to students and families looking at ways to control soaring college tuition costs.


“Our economy increasingly demands a college degree, but for many Ohioans, college remains unaffordable. Simply freezing tuition that is already unaffordable isn’t a long-term solution to make college more accessible. Something has to change,” said Rep. Ramos. “Families and students shouldn’t have to mortgage their future to pay for college. The Ohio LEARN program would allow graduates to focus on their careers and pursuing their dreams upon graduation—not managing decades of crippling debt.”


WHO:             State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain)


WHAT:           Introduction of bill to create the Ohio LEARN tax credit


WHEN:           Tomorrow, Thursday, May 17 at 10:00 a.m.


WHERE:         Harding Senate Press Room, Ohio Statehouse

Ramos Proposes Tuition Coverage For Ohio College Students

 

As Ohio college students don their caps and gowns this month, many will leave school with mountains of debt for four-year degrees. In fact, Ohio families and students face the highest burden of student loan debt in the nation, with the Buckeye State ranking 45th nationally for college affordability. With college out of reach for too many families and students, state Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today introduced legislation to cover 90 percent of the cost for students to attend public college in Ohio. The Ohio Lets Everyone Achieve Right Now (LEARN) tax credit would make Ohio the first state to make college truly affordable for all students.
