Student Debt-Related Bill Introduced
David Goch, Washington Legislative Counsel | January 29, 2013
On January 23, Sen. Richard Durbin (D.-Ill.) introduced S. 114, the Fairness for Struggling Students Act of 2013, a bill that would restore the Bankruptcy Code’s pre-2005 treatment of private student loans by making them dischargeable in bankruptcy.
The bill was previously introduced as S. 1102. A hearing was heard on the original bill in the 112th Congress before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts.
