  • This week, both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate are in session for legislative business. While neither chamber is expected to consider student financial aid-related legislation, the House is expected to consider:
          o   H.R. 3218, the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act, which would expand benefits to veterans and their families under the GI bill;
         o   House Joint Resolution 111, which would repeal the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s final rule prohibiting mandatory arbitration agreements in contracts for financial products that restrict the ability of individuals to file class-action lawsuits against financial institutions; and
         o   H.R. 3219, the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, which includes four of the 12 appropriations bills (U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and U.S. Department of Energy) to fund the discretionary portion of the federal government for fiscal year 2018.
