Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh Calls For Cancellation Of Federal Student Loan Debt

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh is joining a group of other attorneys general calling for the cancellation of federal student loan debt.

They are urging Congress to pass resolutions that call President Joe Biden to cancel $50,000 per borrower.

They say the struggle on recent graduates is significantly more during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The letter also says canceling the debt can substantially increase Black and Latino household wealth and help close the racial wealth gap.
