Press Release

WASHINGTON – The Problem Solvers Caucus announced today that they are formally endorsing the College Transparency Act (H.R. 1766). This endorsement demonstrates the overwhelming bipartisan support for this legislation as members in both chambers continue their work to reform and reauthorize the Higher Education Act.

“I’m thrilled to see bipartisan, bicameral excitement for the College Transparency Act continue to grow. It has long been a priority of mine to ensure students and families have the necessary tools to make informed decisions about their future,” said Rep. Mitchell (MI-10). “Currently, you can find more information about the reliability of a washing machine you're thinking of buying than you can find out about the likelihood of success from an educational major at a college or university, and that’s just wrong. That is why I introduced the College Transparency Act, which would give students a much fuller picture when deciding whether or where to attend college or take out loans. Working with Rep. Josh Harder to gain the Problem Solvers Caucus’s support is a meaningful step in advancing this legislation toward the goal of seeing it signed into law.”

The Problem Solvers Caucus is a bipartisan group in Congress comprising 48 members – equally divided between Democrats and Republicans – who are committed to forging bipartisan cooperation on key issues.
