Negotiated Rulemaking Gearing Up For PAYE Proposed Regulations

The Negotiating Rulemaking Committee has finally been established and the schedule for the committee meetings has been released (http://www2.ed.gov/policy/highered/reg/hearulemaking/2015/index.html).

On December 19, 2014, the Department published a notice in the Federal Register  announcing a “negotiated rulemaking committee to: (1) prepare proposed regulations to establish a new Pay as You Earn repayment plan for those not covered by the existing Pay as You Earn Repayment Plan in the Federal Direct Loan Program.” The Department accepted written comments regarding additional issues that should be considered for action by the negotiating committee.

Hold Fast to Dreams submitted the following public comment supporting “Auto-PAYE” where students are automatically enrolled/eligible for PAYE benefits (http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=ED-2014-OPE-0124-0052).
