House Passes Spousal Student Loan Bill, Sends to Biden

The House passed a bill on Wednesday that allows spouses who combined their student debts under a federal program to split their loans, sending the legislation to President Biden’s desk.

The legislation, titled the Joint Consolidation Loan Separation Act, passed in a 232-193 vote, with 14 GOP members joining Democrats in support.
