In a contentious and extensive debate on Tuesday, a number of conservative justices on the Supreme Court questioned whether President Biden’s executive action to forgive student loans constituted an excessive use of his executive authority. 

Chief Justice John Roberts, referring to the estimated costs of the plan to cancel up to $20,000 in federal student loans and the number of borrowers affected, pointed out that “We’re talking about half a trillion dollars and 43 million Americans. 

How does that fit under the normal understanding of ‘modifying’?” Roberts was scrutinizing the Biden administration’s justification for using the HEROES Act of 2003 to eliminate student debt, a federal law that enables the education secretary to “waive or modify” student-loan balances in response to a national emergency, such as COVID-19. 

The chief justice noted that the court had previously interpreted “modify” as meaning “moderate change” and wondered whether the language of the law could also encompass wide-scale student-loan forgiveness. 

Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar, representing the Biden administration, maintained that Education Secretary Miguel Cardona acted within his authority by permitting the cancellation of debts during the COVID-19 crisis to protect millions of borrowers who have suffered financial hardship and are in danger of defaulting on their loans.
