Following August Recess, the 116th Congress has several updated legislative priorities, with a series of key pieces of legislation to watch. Issues of interest to the ABA involve education, labor, and immigration.
Regarding education, three key bills already introduced in Congress will probably get attention soon. Of particular interest to the ABA is the What You Can Do For Your Country Act (S.1203/H.R.2241). This bill would allow borrowers of all federal loans to qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), as well as borrowers enrolled in any federal repayment plan. Under current law, borrowers enrolled in the extended or graduated repayment plans become ineligible.
