Megan dives into how congressional leaders are approaching an impending spending deadline and what NASFAA members should be on the lookout for when it comes to these massive appropriations packages. Jill highlights what a Biden administration could mean for debt forgiveness and also gives members a preview of new guidance from ED on requirements for institutions when it comes to foreign gift reporting.
