Trump administration sued by 18 U.S. states over student loan relief
Reuters ------ More than one-third of U.S. states on Thursday sued the U.S. Education Department and Secretary Betsy DeVos over the recent suspension of rules that would have swiftly canceled student-loan debt of people defrauded by Corinthian Colleges Inc and other for-profit schools. Last month DeVos pressed pause on the rules, due to take effect on July 1, saying they needed to be reset. Massachusetts, 17 other states and the District of Columbia said in a filing in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. that the department broke federal law in announcing the delay with limited public notice and opportunity to comment. DeVos, a Republican and advocate of public-private partnerships in education, said she wanted to pause the acceleration of the debt cancellation process because it "puts taxpayers on the hook for significant costs."
