Educational Materials for High School Grads Available from Sen. Bieda’s Office

WARREN, Mich. — Sen. Steve Bieda (D–Warren) wants to make sure high school graduates have the information they need to succeed as they move into adulthood and go off to college this fall. That’s why he’s offering free copies of “Movin’ On: Rights & Responsibilities of Young Adults” at no charge.

“It’s important for young folks to understand their options, particularly when it comes to finances,” Sen. Bieda said. “Student loans can be particularly tricky. If you have a subsidized federal loan, the government will make your interest payments while you’re in school. If the loan is unsubsidized, you’re responsible for making those payments instead. Making those extra payments can be challenging.”

The booklet also includes helpful information on a number of key issues facing young adults after high school, including:

  • Voting.
  • Public office.
  • The age of majority.
  • Drinking.
  • Higher education.
  • Renting.
  • Job search and career planning.
  • Establishing credit.
  • Community involvement.

Constituents can call Sen. Bieda’s office at 866-262-7309 or email SenSBieda@senate.michigan.gov with their name, address and phone number to receive a free copy.
