Senators Wyden, Merkley addresses college affordability

Posted: Updated:

The college applications have been sent, but for some, the worry about paying for it remains.

Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley have been addressing this issue across the state.

They were at Franklin High School Friday to talk with seniors about financial options.

"I am concerned and I'm hoping I'm going to hear some good stuff from the senators today and hopefully reassure some of my worries about paying for college," said Hudson, a student at Franklin high school.

The senators have implemented the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Partnership Act as ways to help families afford the cost of higher education.
