This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin, Megan, Stephen, and Allie analyze the outcome of the House education committee's 13-hour markup session of the PROSPER Act — the House Republicans' bill to reauthorize the Higher Education Act. The gang discusses the political reverberations of the Alabama Senate election and another deadline leading to a government shutdown — the team dives into what could happen in the next few weeks. Plus, Justin shares his favorite new way to "hack" airport travel. (Spoiler alert: it involves a skateboard), and Allie tells us about a celebrity dog who attended the House HEA markup hearing. This will be the last "Off The Cuff" episode for 2017 — in the meantime, send us your "highs and lows" from the year, and we'll discuss it in our first episode back in January 2018. Happy holidays, and happy New Year, NASFAA members!
