More than 250 students, coordinators, and college and university presidents visited their state legislators on Tuesday, April 16. This Student Lobby Day was part of the AICUP Annual Meeting. AICUP member presidents, student lobby day coordinators, and their students gathered for breakfast on Tuesday morning to hear Senator Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland), who is the prime sponsor of Senate Bill 420—the Middle Income Student Debt Reduction Act (MISDRA). Senator Ward gave students practical advice about lobbying their legislators in light of the current complex mix of legislation, and she spoke of the importance of MISDRA legislation.
