Veterans for Common Sense Among 57 Org’s Calling for Congress to Repeal, Replace Anti Student Veteran Rule

(WASHINGTON – DECEMBER 11, 2019) — In September, the Department of Education released a new version of the “Borrower Defense to Repayment” rule that would make it virtually impossible for students cheated by their college to cancel their student loans. Senator Dick Durbin and Representative Susie Lee have introduced a Congressional Review Act challenge to repeal this rule and restore stronger student protections put in place in a 2016 rule.

Today, 57 organizations including Veterans for Common Sense released a letter supporting the Durbin-Lee efforts so that students who were fraudulently deceived or whose schools engaged in other illegal conduct can access relief from their student debts.
