Congressman Barrow encourages student budgeting

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) encourages students to budget wisely.

Congressman Barrow hosted a financial literacy seminar at GRU on Tuesday, helping students learn the best ways to save and spend their money. Bankers, financial groups, and even counselors were there advising students about their future.

"It's very easy to get in over your head before you ever get out the door and that would be a huge mistake," said Congressman Barrow. Like a lot of people, I borrowed my way through law school but the loan that I had to pay off back in the old days was less than the loan that I had for my very first car. Today it's the other way around; you can have a whole lot more student debt before you ever get your first car much less your first home."

Congressman Barrow also spoke to students at East Georgia State College in Statesboro.
