U.S. Senator Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) was among those to weigh in on the U.S. Supreme Court's Biden v. Nebraska decision, which overturned the Biden administration's federal student loan forgiveness program.

"Hard work and personal responsibility are at the heart of the American Dream. As we knew all along, the Biden Administration's student loan debt transfer scheme was unfair, unjust, and unlawful. I was proud to join my Republican colleagues on an amicus brief in this important case, and I'll continue to fight in the Senate against this White House's attempts to circumvent Congress and impose their radical partisan agenda on Alabama families," Britt said.

Earlier this year, Britt joined several Republican lawmakers in authoring an amicus brief arguing against the forgiveness plan.

The Biden administration's debt forgiveness plan would have canceled $10,000 or $20,000 of federal student loan debt, depending on the loan amount and borrower's income. It is estimated that the loan forgiveness would have cost taxpayers $400 million.
