White House Drops College Savings Proposal


The Obama administration’s pitch to end the popular 529 College Savings Plan is dropped. Congressional Republicans and Democrats say ending the plan would lead to more debt and less opportunities for students. They criticized the move saying the plan allows users to save money and withdraw it tax free as long as they use the money to pay for college. The White House says it will now call on Congress to look at education tax relief.
