Act Now: Tell Your Representative Not to Turn a Blind Eye to Waste, Fraud and Abuse
When Congress returns in September, the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on legislation (HR 2637) that would repeal rules protecting students, including veterans, from waste, fraud, and abuse, and tie the Education Secretary's hands while leaving taxpayers and students holding the check.
This reckless bill would weaken the current ban on colleges paying bonuses based on increased enrollment or financial aid; block enforcement of the law requiring career education programs receiving federal student aid to prepare students for "gainful employment in a recognized occupation"; and even repeal the current requirement that these career education programs disclose basic consumer information to prospective students, such as tuition and fees, debt levels, and completion and job placement rates.
Take action now! Contact your Representative today to urge them to vote NO on HR 2637.
