  • 1: On Passage: Borrower Defense Institutional Accountability Rule CRA, H.J.Res. 76Nay

    Key Vote 1: On Passage: Borrower Defense Institutional Accountability Rule CRA, H.J.Res. 76

    This Democrat-only Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution would undo updated borrower defense regulations that will be a marked improvement over the existing set of regulations that were issued under President Obama. Borrower defense policy, which is intended to allow students who were defrauded by institutions of higher education to receive relief for their federal student loans, has existed for more than two decades but was rarely used until the Obama Administration. Whatever one’s opinion on the merits of loan forgiveness for alleged defrauding or even of federal student loans themselves, it can and should certainly be agreed upon that such a forgiveness program should be structured in such a way that it provides relief only to those who were truly defrauded, in the same way that the social safety net should apply only to the most vulnerable and in need amongst us. The revised borrower defense regulations set to go into effect in July 2020 are the result of more than two years of deliberations and significant input from the public and from higher education stakeholders, following years of broad relief granted to groups under the existing regulations. As such, fortunately, the new regulations address many of the flaws of the existing structure of borrower defense. Chief among these is the narrowing of the definition of misrepresentation by requiring that the institution must have knowledge that the alleged misrepresentation is false.

  • 2: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass: USPS Fairness ActNay

    Key Vote 2: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass: USPS Fairness Act

    The USPS Fairness Act sets the stage for a taxpayer-funded bailout of the Retiree Health Benefits Fund. There are serious and fiscal proposals to address the issues that face the U.S. Postal Service. The USPS Fairness Act is not one of them.

  • 3: On Passage: PRO ActNay

    Key Vote 3: On Passage: PRO Act

    The PRO Act is one of the most anti-worker and anti-business bills that we have ever seen brought to the House floor. Introduced by Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.), the PRO Act is a giveaway to labor unions that would harm our economy and that especially targets workers who choose not to join unions.

  • 4: On Passage: Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief and Puerto Rico Disaster Tax Relief ActNay

    Key Vote 4: On Passage: Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief and Puerto Rico Disaster Tax Relief Act

    The additional appropriations in the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief and Puerto Rico Disaster Tax Relief Act would spend an additional $4.67 billion in FY 2020. While we understand that this is for emergency disaster relief, question both whether it is necessary to appropriate new funds whether they will even be put to good use, considering that a) there is $34.846 billion left in the Disaster Relief Fund and b) that it recently came to light that unused resources provided after Hurricane Maria in September 2017 were discovered in a warehouse in Ponce, Puerto Rico.
