Gubernatorial Candidate Wants Loan Forgivness For Students

Kentucky college students could catch a break when it comes to student loans.

Democrat Steve Beshear is recommending a plan that would forgive loans for students who stay and work in Kentucky after graduating.

A year of the loan would be forgiven for every year the student works in Kentucky.

Beshear says funding his program hinges on passing a constitutional amendment to allow casino gambling at racetracks.
