Education

ABLE Act

We need higher educational opportunities for young folks. While there has been progress on availability of programs, it can be expensive for many of these folks. Unlike typical peers, those who may need to depend on the social safety net programs cannot save for college in a 529 plan as it would disqualify them for MedicAide and SSI if needed. ABLE Act (currently in both houses with bipartisan support) would fix this.
