The department, he said, administers student loans, grants and work study programs. "If you get rid of the Department of Education, they're gone. It's that simple. It's not a complicated one."
Matheson said Love's "extreme position" goes beyond that of Republicans nationally and locally.
Hatch said he has always supported student loans and grants. But he said he's concerned about eligibility issues. The money, he said, needs to be watched carefully so it's there for young people when they need it. He said he also worries about them going into deep debt for college because it's difficult to pay back.
Hatch said his impression of what Love has said about the education department and college aid is that she's not really against them but wants things to work better.
