Congress could seek to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, which among other things governs financial aid. The 50-year-old law was last reauthorized in 2008 and is due for a rewrite. Lawmakers have expressed interest in making headway this year, even though it is a tremendous undertaking.
"How Will DeVos Influence Higher Education?" is from the February 08, 2017 Politics section of The Washington Post. It was written by Danielle Douglas-Gabriel and narrated by Sam Scholl.
