Lamar Alexander, Doug Jones Introduce Bill to Simplify the FAFSA

October 27, 2019

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Doug Jones (D-Ala.) have introduced legislation to simplify the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that nearly 20 million families fill out every year to apply for federal student aid. 

“The 108-question FAFSA is one of the biggest challenges low-income students who want to go to college face,” Alexander, chairman of the Senate education committee, said. “Former Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam told me that Tennessee has the highest rate of filling out the FAFSA, but it is still the single biggest impediment to more students enrolling in Tennessee Promise, our state’s free, two-year community college program.”

August 12, 2019

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – I’m not sure who decided to call the Senate’s August work period “recess,” but it could use a rebrand. I’m using this month to reconnect with Tennesseans from all corners of our great Volunteer State.

This past week, I visited Middle Tennessee, and received updates from local businessmen, health care professionals, and local officials who are tuned in to the region’s many successes, and emerging opportunities for growth.

Tennessee’s strong workforce, right-to-work law, and central location make companies eager to set up shop.
