STUDENT LOAN REFORM. Both the health reform and the financial reform laws make big changes to loans for college students. Under new law, interest rates of public loans will be lower, and eventually, repayment would be based on income instead of interest. Private student loans for the first time will be overseen by a consumer protection agency. As parents and students get ready to file for financial aid, this edition takes a look at what the new laws mean.
