The U.S. Supreme Court is striking down President Biden’s student debt forgiveness plan. In a 6-3 decision, the justices ruled the president overstepped his authority when he didn’t get authorization from Congress.
The plan would’ve canceled $20,000 in loans for people who got Pell Grants, which is aid for low-income students, or up to $10,000 for all other federal borrowers.
In another decision, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Christian web designer who refused to design websites for same-sex weddings. The high court in another 6-3 ruling says the Colorado web designer has a free speech right under the First Amendment to refuse to endorse messages she disagrees with.
LGBTQ advocates argue with the decision, saying it could allow business owners to evade punishment under laws in dozens of states aimed at protecting LGBTQ rights.
