Gov. Rell called for a new loan forgiveness program for students who stay and work in Connecticut after they graduate from college, specifically with the degrees in green technology, renewable energy, life sciences or health information technology.
"They will receive a $2,500 annual forgiveness for each of four years if they have a baccalaureate or higher degree or $2,500 a year for two years with an associate degree," said Gov. Rell, "Join me into making this loan forgiveness program a reality."
Gov. Rell urged lawmakers to adopt this program because companies can only succeed if they have the qualified, trained employees they need.
