Explore our coverage of government and politics. Ask Bob: Who Was Robert Stafford Of The Stafford Act? Vermont Public Radio | By Bob Kinzel, Mitch Wertlieb Published April 3, 2020 at 8:47 AM EDT Vermont Senators Robert Stafford, left, and Patrick Leahy, right, on March 5, 1979. Stafford is the namesake for the legislation that gave President Trump emergency powers during the coronavirus crisis. Several weeks ago, as the coronavirus crisis began to unfold, President Trump issued an emergency executive order which gave him the power to implement new rules and regulations to help contain the spread of the virus. The legislation the president used is known as the Stafford Act, named after Vermont Sen. Robert Stafford. And as VPR senior political reporter Bob Kinzel points out, Stafford also had a strong reputation as an environmental leader and a champion of higher education. Why did a senator from Vermont sponsor emergency power legislation in the 1980's? Sen. Robert Stafford was known as a strong environmentalist. He chaired the Senate Environment Committee for a while, and in that capacity, identified global warming as a key issue. More than 30 years ago, he was also the chief sponsor of a law that provides student loans for higher education — these are actually known today as Stafford loans. But why? Why did he become the chief sponsor of a law giving the president of the United States such extraordinary emergency powers? Well, Sen. Patrick Leahy served in the Senate with Stafford for 14 years, and recently, I put this question to him.

Dec 24, 2006 ... Former Senator Robert T. Stafford was a staunch environmentalist and champion of education whose name is familiar to countless college ... SKIP TO CONTENTSKIP TO SITE INDEX Robert T. Stafford, 93, Former Vermont Senator and Governor, Dies MONTPELIER, Vt., Dec. 23 (AP) — Former Senator Robert T. Stafford, a staunch environmentalist and champion of education whose name is familiar to countless college students through a loan program named for him, died Saturday. He was 93. Mr. Stafford’s death was announced by Neal Houston, his former chief of staff. Mr. Stafford served 2 years as governor, 11 years in the House and 17 in the Senate before retiring in 1989. As the ranking Republican on the Senate’s environment committee, he repeatedly defended the Superfund program to clean up contaminated sites and shepherded bills combating acid rain and automobile pollution. In 1988, Congress saluted his dedication to education measures, renaming the Federal Guaranteed Student Loan program the Robert T. Stafford Student Loan program. The low-interest loans are now known almost universally as Stafford loans to the millions who qualify for them each year. According to the federal Education Department, about 14 million Stafford loans were given to postsecondary students in 2006. Mr. Stafford was not shy about bucking presidents of his own party. He led a successful effort to override President Ronald Reagan’s veto of amendments that strengthened the Clean Water Act, and tangled with industry when he believed that it was thwarting efforts to clean the environment.
