House Democrats unveil legislation to forgive student loans for health workers

House Democrats introduced a bill Tuesday to forgive student debt for health care workers on the frontlines of the pandemic. If passed, the Student Loan Forgiveness for Frontline Health Workers Act, introduced by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) Tuesday, would establish a federal and private loan forgiveness program for all medical professionals.
