The Federal Student Loan Protection Act is now one step closer to becoming law after passing the U.S. House.
The bill was inspired by a family from Burlington County.
Christopher Bryski died during his third year at Rutgers University.
His family had cosigned for his private student loans and was then forced to take on the burden of those loans after Christopher's death.
LINK: Watch/read Nydia Han's report - "Parents learn difficult lesson on loans after son's death" The Christopher Bryski Student Loan Protection Act would require banks to provide information to families about their responsibilities in the event of a student's death or incapacitation.
The bill also urges banks to forgive private loans when a student dies.
