Student loan deal emerges in Senate

Washington (CNNMoney) - A bipartisan group of senators has reached a tentative deal to help students facing a doubling of interest rates to 6.8% on government-backed student loans.

The deal, which would have to pass a Senate vote, calls for interest rates on all government Stafford loans for students to be pegged to rates on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note, according to multiple sources close to the negotiations.
