Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
The Secretary proposes to amend the Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins Loan) Program regulations. These proposed regulations are intended to improve collections in the Perkins Loan program by providing greater flexibility in the process of assigning defaulted Perkins loans to the Secretary for collection. They allow State institutions participating in the Perkins program to invoke their right to sovereign immunity in bankruptcy proceedings. In addition, these proposed regulations clarify the maximum collection costs that may be assessed a borrower who defaults on a rehabilitated defaulted loan.
We must receive your comments on or before September 11, 2000.
