By a vote of 6-3, the US Supreme Court Justices issued a June 30, 2023 decision that the Biden administration overstepped its authority in 2021 when it announced that it would cancel up to $400 billion in student loans. The Court found that Biden’s plan implicated the “major questions doctrine,” which was the same argument raised by the Brown County Taxpayers Association in its case.
