Episode 79: Education Funding Moves Through House, SCOTUS Shakes Up Higher Ed, and Student Debt Moves to Reality TV

This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin, Stephen, and Allie catch us up on the latest news in federal spending, as the House Appropriations Committee passed a spending bill for education programs for fiscal year 2019. The bill, which included a few notable higher education-related amendments, now moves to the floor for a vote by the full House, and a similar bill in the Senate awaits a floor vote. The team also discusses how President Donald Trump's new Supreme Court nominee could have an impact on higher education and affirmative action. Plus, rumors swirled on Capitol Hill about a potential celebrity visit, and student debt moves into prime time in a new reality TV show.
