Supreme Court rejects bid to stop Biden's student debt relief plan

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an effort to block the Biden administration's student debt relief plan, reports NBC News. Spearheaded by a "Wisconsin taxpayers group", the last-ditch emergency application was formally bounced by Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who is responsible for the relevant circuit court district. The plan, offering up to $20,000 of debt relief to people with government-backed student loans, can now proceed: you can already apply.
