On Thursday, Congresswoman Erin Houchin (R-IN), Member of the Education and the Workforce Committee, issued a statement following reports of additional FAFSA failures:
“After a botched rollout of the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), Biden’s Education Department dysfunction continues with a new report that nearly 330K applications will need to be reprocessed due to an issue with tax data. 5% of the over 6.6 million applications submitted so far have contained errors in IRS tax data, imported by the Department, that would make students eligible for less financial aid than they’re entitled to with an additional 10% gaining access to too much aid.

“With this news, unfortunately families should prepare for even more delays. This comes after a bungled launch filled with technical errors which left millions of students and families unsure about their financial aid packages. The Biden Administration is more focused on its illegal student loan scheme than fixing the issues at hand.

“While the dysfunction continues, families are left with no answers to plan for their child’s future education, including my own family as I have one child in college and another heading to school this fall. I am as frustrated as anyone.

“Secretary Cardona owes us answers and real solutions. We owe transparency to the American people.,” Houchin said.
