Indiana Chamber proposal would require parents to complete financial aid forms for children

You’d be required to fill out the college financial aid form for your child under a proposal from the Indiana Chamber.

The Chamber and the state have set a target of boosting the number of Hoosiers with certifications or college degrees to 60% in six years.

Chamber President Kevin Brinegar says the state not only lags other states in degrees but in the number of students applying for financial aid.

Brinegar says making the application mandatory for everyone else would keep people from just assuming they can’t afford college.
