Sponsor: Rep. Grothman [R-WI]

S.2020 – Terrorism Survivors Student loan Deferment Work
Sponsor: Sen. Marco Rubio [R-FL]
NASFAA Conclusion & Analysis: This bill would allow survivors of terrorist attacks to receive automatic deferments of their federal student loan payments. This forbearance would not count against the typical three-year maximum deferment allowance, but rather provide a one-year pause for victims. It would also designate the federal agency in charge of investigating the attack as responsible for identifying those victims.
