WASHINGTON – The Consumer Bankers Association today published a podcast focused on student lending as part of its regular Suite 550 podcast series. The episode features CBA Vice President of Congressional Affairs Kris Fallon CBA President & CEO Richard Hunt.

Fallon and Hunt discuss CBA’s student lending reform recommendations as well as a recent poll examining Americans’ views on student loans and student debt. The CBA-conducted poll found Americans strongly believe student loans should carry clear, personalized, plain-language disclosures about the loan’s total costs. Similar disclosures are already provided by private student lenders but do not exist for federal student loans. The poll also found nearly 85 percent support placing responsible caps on federal loans to offer access to a quality education without setting up a debt trap post-graduation.
