“Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Tuesday rolled back an Obama administration attempt to reform how student loan servicers collect debt.”

“The Obama administration’s vision for how federal loans would be serviced almost certainly meant that the feds would have to increase how much they pay loan contractors to collect monthly payments from borrowers and counsel them on repayment options. Already, the government annually spends around $800 million to collect on nearly $1.1 trillion of debt. DeVos, however, made clear that her department would focus on limiting costs.

“We must create a student loan servicing environment that provides the highest quality customer service and increases accountability and transparency for all borrowers, while also limiting the cost to taxpayers,” DeVos said. More here. DeVos Undoes Obama Student Loan Protections
