Political group plans student loan rally

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The Young Democrats of Arkansas are planning a rally to draw attention to federally subsidized student loans.

The group plans to gather at 10 a.m. Monday on the University of Arkansas campus.

The organization says the rally at the Old Main building will focus on Stafford student loans. After a contentious debate, a bipartisan vote in Congress returned a lower interest rate to the loans.
