Judge hears case on whether Biden’s student loan forgiveness can move forward

From CNN: “Six Republican-led states filed a lawsuit last month challenging the legality of the policy and are asking the court to grant a preliminary injunction, which could put student loan cancellation on hold until the judge issues a final ruling on the case. The Department of Education is expected to open an application for the student loan forgiveness program this month. … The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in Missouri by state attorneys general from Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska and South Carolina, as well as legal representatives from Iowa. … After hearing from the lawyers for both parties, (Judge) Autrey declared a recess and told the attorneys they would hear from him soon.”
