WASHINGTON (AP) -- Legislation that will roll back student loan interest rates this fall awaits the signature of President Barack Obama.

The bipartisan bill easily cleared the House on a vote of 392-31. Undergraduates this fall will borrow at a 3.9 percent interest rate for Stafford subsidized and unsubsidized loans.

But the rates are linked to the financial markets and expected to climb in following years as the economy improves.
