Statement by ACE President Ted Mitchell on House Passage of the FUTURE Act
December 10, 2019

​​“We applaud House passage of the FUTURE Act. It represents a bipartisan consensus that is always welcome but increasingly rare.

Most importantly, this legislation has tremendous benefits for students, families, and institutions. It permanently restores the annual appropriation of $255 mi​llion for minority serving institutions that expired Sept. 30, and also streamlines both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the process borrowers use to repay income-driven student loans.

We ask that the Senate approve this important measure before the end of the year.”
