This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin shares some details from his recent meeting with newly-appointed FSA COO, Dr. A. Wayne Johnson. The two discussed a range of topics that are mutually important to financial aid professionals and FSA. Plus, Justin, Stephen, and Allie dig into the latest developments on the federal budget front, as two House committees debated and advanced two separate pieces of legislation related to the 2018 budget. One of those proposals – a budget resolution moving from the House Budget Committee – could open the door to a reconciliation process that could put some student aid programs at risk, Justin and Stephen explained. On a lighter note, Allie outlines the details from a new bill to strengthen Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits for student veterans. Plus, Allie and Justin talk about their recent close encounters with wildlife at the zoo.
