Federal Update

Submitted by: Dawn Y. Mosisa and Rachel Brinkley Smith

FRC Committee Happenings:
On October 19, 2011, the Tristate and EASFAA Federal Relations Committees, along with the participation of SASFAA, will be holding a Legislative Briefing in Washington, D.C. This event will bring together the Legislative Aides of key congressional members and a panel comprised of respected members of our respective associations to educate our legislators on key issues facing our industry. We are very excited to be holding this event on the 2nd annual "Financial Aid Professionals Day", as proclaimed by EASFAA.

Regulatory Reminder:
