A Potential Remedy to Some FAFSA Woes Is Sitting in Congress. Could It Pass?

"Dueling plans for the future of American higher education are sitting in Congress right now, gathering dust," USA Today reports.

"'Our topics end up sitting on the shelf for quite some time,' said Karen McCarthy, the vice president of public policy and federal relations at the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, in a recent interview. 'We pay attention to them when Congress does get some momentum around addressing our topics.'"
