H.Roentgen.5084 – Student loan Refinancing Operate
Sponsor: Rep. Turner [R-OH]
Cosponsors: 1 (1D; 0R)
NASFAA Bottom line & Analysis: After completing an application for refinancing for an eligible federal student loan, the borrower would be able to refinance their loan’s interest rate to the interest rate for current new borrowers at the same time of the application. The bill would also ensure that refinancing loans does not affect a borrower’s monthly payment count on IDR repayment plans and PSLF plans.
S.2596 – Financing Act out of 2021
Sponsor: Sen. Rubio [R-FL]
NASFAA Realization & Analysis: This bill would eliminate interest and replace it with a one-time, non-compounding origination fee that borrowers will pay over the life of the loan. For borrowers who pay off their loans faster than the established repayment plan’s time limit, ED could credit or refund borrowers a calculated amount of the financing fee. The bill would also allow only two repayment plan options, the standard 10-year repayment plan, and an income driven repayment plan, to be created with this bill. Borrowers would automatically be placed in the IDR plan, but can elect to move to the standard repayment plan.
