Passed House (01/16/2020)

This joint resolution nullifies a rule issued by the Department of Education (ED) on September 23, 2019. The rule revised the process for a student loan borrower to obtain a discharge from a student loan if an institution of education misrepresented a material fact. Among other requirements, the 2019 rule requires each borrower to submit an application to ED. Under the previous 2016 rule, an application could be submitted for an entire group (e.g., veterans).
