Washington
Student loans, GSE reforms could be SOTU topics tonight
WASHINGTON (1/28/14)--Student loan issues and housing finance reforms could be on the agenda when President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address tonight, and the Credit Union National Association will be watching to gauge what Obama's policy objectives could mean for credit unions going forward.

Opportunity, action, and optimism will be the three pillars of the speech, White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer said in an email to supporters. The speech "will lay out a set of real, concrete, practical proposals to grow the economy, strengthen the middle class, and empower all who hope to join it," he added.

And, Pfeiffer wrote, while Obama plans to work with the U.S. Congress to achieve these goals, he does not plan to always wait for the U.S. Congress to act.

The president plans to take his message on the road in the days following his speech. According to a Jan. 27 Politico report, student debt refinancing, manufacturing, college affordability and women's issues will by Obama administration priorities in the near future.
