Recap: Rule-Making Committee Struggles to Reach Consensus

"Following a months-long process, negotiators are meeting with the Department of Education this week for the final time to discuss regulatory changes to several federal student aid programs, with hopes of reaching agreement on the new language that officials have proposed," Inside Higher Ed reports. 

..."'I think it’s easier to withhold consensus when it’s topic by topic,' said Jill Desjean, policy analyst at the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. 'If you’re thinking about the entire package, you have to think long and hard about whether your issue is material enough to blow up the whole thing. Whereas when it’s just individual topics, I think it’s a little bit easier to say no on one thing.'"
