NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today co-led a coalition of 27 attorneys general from around the nation in calling on the U.S. Department of Education to provide federal student loan borrowers with crucial emergency measures to help in the wake of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. In a letter to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, the coalition asks the Department of Education to take specific steps to protect borrowers from further financial burden and debt collection due to job losses and lost wages, resulting from the exponential rise in national unemployment in the last few weeks.
