As things move quickly in Washington, DC, NACUBO is your constant advocate in action. NACUBO On Your Side covers important legislative and agency activity NACUBO staff are tracking, what we’re currently advocating for, and how you can take action with us.

Here are the issues we are tracking and advocating for this week.

On the Hill

Reintroduced Bill Would Regulate Income Share Agreements
On July 19, senators from both parties reintroduced the ISA Student Protection Act, a bill that would provide regulatory guidance and consumer protections for income share agreements (ISAs). ISAs are contracts between an entity and student, where the student is provided money upfront for their education in exchange for a percentage of their future income to be paid to the entity over a specified time. Earlier this year, the Department of Education announced that ISAs should be treated as private student loans.
