Vermont Congressman Peter Welch says he wants to hear from residents about their struggles with student loans.  WAMC’s Tristan O’Neill reports…

Congress is at loggerheads over how to avoid a July 1st doubling of interest rates on some Stafford Student Loans, and Welch and the head of the Vermont Student Assistance Corp. will be holding a telephone conference call Wednesday evening with people concerned about the issue.

Welch will be joined on the 7:30 call by VSAC's Don Vickers.

Following brief introductory remarks, Vermonters taking part in the call will have a chance to ask questions, share stories, and offer ideas.

To join the call, dial (toll-free) 877-229-8493 and enter PIN code 13785.
