Owen got accepted to college! He is excited to live away from home and to learn more!
Owen then remembers all of the student loans he took out to go to college... He knows he will be paying them off for the rest of his life.
Then Owen has an idea! He wants to make college affordable for all students. As a millennial, his favorite senator is Senator Sanders. He decides to call him to inspire change.
Senator Sanders thinks that this is a brilliant idea! He decides to write a bill proposing free public college for everyone. He is allowed to introduce the bill the next day in the Senate. If a member of the House had introduced the bill, they would put it in the hopper.
Senator Sanders introduces the bill. The Speaker of the House decides to assign it to the Committee for Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.
The Committee thinks that the bill is a great idea, and the bill moves to voting!
