Loan Forgiveness Program for Prosecutors and Public Defenders
President Bush signed into law the Higher Education Opportunity Act, H.R.4137, P.L. 110-315, last week. [Thomas Resources | Open Congress Resources] Along with making higher education more accessible and affordable, the bill amends the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 (42 U.S.C. 3711 et seq.) by authorizing the Attorney General to establish a program by which the Department of Justice shall assume the obligation to repay a student loan for any borrower who is employed as a prosecutor or public defender and who agrees to remain employed, for at least three years.
Sorry about the delay in posting this announcement. Been busy paying bills. [RJ]

Regarding the loan forgiveness for prosecutors and public defenders, does anyone know when the AG will actually establish the program and begin distributing funds? Thank you. db
