Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul wants to extend and expand the government’s student loan forgiveness program.  Borrowers who work in the public sector are eligible for debt relief under the program but many say they’re not able to use it because it’s so difficult to navigate.  Illinois is among 20 states that are asking the White House to expand the program and give borrowers more time to apply.
