UNLV Student Slams Heck-Ryan Plan to Gut Pell Grants

Las Vegas, NV – UNLV student Elias Benjelloun issued the following statement responding to Joe Heck and Paul Ryan’s latest budget that guts Pell Grants for Nevada students:

 

“After proposing massive cuts to Pell Grants in their two previous budgets, Nevada students shouldn’t be surprised that Joe Heck and Paul Ryan’s latest plan again guts student aid.  College students across Nevada continue to suffer from failed Republican pro-Wall Street, anti-middle class policies, and Joe Heck’s proposed cuts to Pell Grants would only make things worse.  Joe Heck should stop trying to make college less affordable for Nevada students just to pay for more taxpayer giveaways to Big Oil.”
