Kline Letter to Chairman George Miller
Topic: Administration Advocacy for Direct Loan Conversion


Dear Chairman Miller:

In recent months I have grown increasingly concerned by reports that Department of Education officials are improperly using taxpayer resources to advocate for the Administration’s proposal to eliminate the Federal Family Education Loan program. House and Senate Democrats have likewise questioned the Administration’s “aggressive outreach,” and the Wall Street Journal reported on December 5, 2009 that the leader of a large university recently refused to discuss the Administration’s tactics, “fearful that the feds are taking names.” Regardless of your position on the Administration’s student loan proposals, I hope you will agree with me that such tactics by Administration officials are deeply troubling and warrant Congressional oversight.
