On May 2, a coalition of state attorneys general, led by New York Attorney General Letitia James, announced that they are urging President Biden to cancel all outstanding federal student loan debt. In the letter, the AGs argue that full cancellation of student debt is necessary to address: the (i) enormity of the debt owed; (ii) effects of the Covid-19 pandemic; (iii) “systemically flawed repayment and forgiveness system”; and (vi) disproportionate impact on the borrowers’ debt burden, among other things. The AGs further noted that using resources to help individuals who have been “tricked” into forbearance plans, suing contractors who “bungle critical processes,” and protecting consumers from “aggressive” and “predatory” for-profit colleges have provided the AGs with a “deep understanding of the systemic challenges” facing federal student loan borrowers. The AGs stated that President Biden has authority to act under the Higher Education Act, and that such action “would benefit millions of borrowers and be one of the most impactful racial and economic justice initiatives in recent memory.”
