The Supreme Court has ruled the Biden administration overstepped its authority in trying to cancel or reduce student loan debt, effectively killing the $400 billion plan, which would have canceled up to $20,000 in federal student loans for 43 million people. Of those, 20 million would have had their remaining student debt erased completely.
The court's decision means, barring an act of Congress, those Americans are on the hook for payments starting in October.
More than 775,000 Minnesotans have student loan debt.
