The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and 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 doing so would benefit minority students and those from low income backgrounds. They also discussed how the coronavirus pandemic had exacerbated students' need for higher education 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
