Today lawmakers will vote on a Congressional Review Act resolution that is set to block DeVos’ “borrower defense” rule. Votes are expected to start at 10 a.m.
— The rule, which is set to take effect on July 1, sets a stricter standard for when the government will wipe out the debt of students who claim they were misled or deceived by their college.
— However, the resolution is not expected to come up in the Senate until after Trump’s impeachment trial, according to a Democratic congressional aide.
