kl105 1 year, 11 months ago on AP: Deal wants more time for HOPE changes

Interesting that one of the "More like this story" articles is about the new low interest rate (1%) loans the generous General Assembly made available to students to help offset the HOPE tuition, fees, and books gap left due to the HOPE program changes. I wonder how many students have been able to receive this loan since students selected must first apply all other financial aid, including the much higher interest rate federal student loans. With Georgia's relatively low cost of attendance, the only students who can't borrow federal money at the higher interest rate are those already in default on student loans. Is this what our elected officials intended??
