Cassidy, Hatch, Warren, Whitehouse introduce Bipartisan College Transparency Act
"Monday, U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), introduced legislation to modernize the college reporting system for postsecondary data in order to provide greater transparency for students, families, institutions, and policymakers," The Weekly Citizen reports

This legislation is also supported by, the Association of Community Colleges (AACC), The United States Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), Rebuilding America’s Middle Class (RAMC) a Coalition of Community Colleges, The Institute for College Access and Success (TICAS), Third Way, Veterans Education Success (VES), Workforce Data Quality Campaign and Young Invincibles."
