PA Officials Approve Bill to Forgive Student Loans of Volunteer Firefighters

Pennsylvania officials have unanimously passed a new measure that seeks to ease the burden of student loan debt for municipal volunteers of fire companies, rescue companies, and non-profit emergency medical services, reports Fox 29 Philadelphia.

An amended version of the bill will head to Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives.

If passed, up to $16,000 in loans would be forgiven for college graduates who served four years with either a volunteer fire company, volunteer rescue company or an emergency medical services agency.
