The Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee held a hearing on simplifying the student aid application known as Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA.) Senators and witnesses discussed the importance of shortening the FAFSA application and how it would benefit minority students and those from low income backgrounds. They also discussed how the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated the higher education system and more students need for financial aid due to the unstable economy. Senators praised Chair Lamar Alexander’s (R-TN) leadership on the committee and the issue. The hearing was mostly virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. close
