Texas Court Opposes Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness Program

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.9 | Relevance 4.7

A U.S. District Court in Texas inhibited President Biden’s student debt forgiveness plan from being put into action on the grounds that the administration is not authorized to do so.  Texas Judge Mark Pittman said, “In this case, the HEROES Act – a law to provide loan assistance to military personnel defending our nation – does not provide the executive branch clear congressional authorization to create a $400 billion student loan forgiveness program.”  The Texas case has been added to the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to block the program in addition to another lawsuit where six states are disputing the program and Biden’s authority to act.
