California AG sues DeVos over troubled public service loan forgiveness program

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is suing Education Secretary Betsy DeVos over a roundly criticized loan forgiveness program designed for public service workers.

The lawsuit alleges that the Education Department (ED) is “flouting Congress’s clear and repeated instructions to provide student loan debt relief to public servants” and making loan forgiveness “virtually inaccessible” through a “convoluted application process” for these borrowers.

“College graduates who put in a decade of hard work and made timely payments on their student loans earned their [temporary public service] loan forgiveness. But Education Secretary Betsy DeVos chose to ignore all of that,” Attorney General Becerra said in a statement. “Today’s lawsuit reminds Secretary DeVos that she is not above the law.”

Becerra added that DeVos “is accountable to these college graduates who followed the rules and deserve better, especially amidst an economic crisis of historic proportions.”

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, this “mismanagement” of the loan

California coronavirus infections spike as Gov. Newsom pushes forward with reopening plans

Billionaire and former presidential candidate Tom Steyer has joined forces with California Gov. Gavin Newsom to lead the state’s recovery task force. 

The economic devastation was so harsh, sudden, and unprecedented in California, Steyer told Yahoo Finance, that the task force, which also includes former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and Walt Disney Executive Chairman Bob Iger, has been forced to “make up the playbook of how to respond to this health crisis.”

While Newsom became the first governor to shut down his state’s economy to combat the surge of coronavirus cases in March, he’s since taken a more nuanced approach to the rise in reported cases in the state over the past 14 days in the hopes of limiting the damage. There have been over 33,000 new coronavirus cases over the past two weeks.

California Governor has ‘stepped up’ in fight against coronavirus, Meg Whitman says

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has prompted a clash between President Donald Trump and many U.S. governors, who’ve imposed orders that have forced the vast majority of Americans into their homes and shuttered non-essential businesses — a dynamic that has played out between Trump and the leader of the most populous state, Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

In a newly released interview, taped on April 7, Quibi CEO and Republican fundraiser Meg Whitman praised the coronavirus response of Newsom, who issued a stay-at-home order in California on March 19, making his state one of the first to do so.

“I think California has done a good job here,” says Whitman, who ran as a Republican candidate for governor of California in 2010 but supported Democrat Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy in 2016. “You’re starting to see the flattening of the curve.”

New York, California take drastic measures as US cases skyrocket

The U.S.’s escalating coronavirus crisis prompted New York and California to sharply restrict movement within those states, with the Trump administration moving to support consumers and businesses as the economic fallout deepens.

California became the first state late Thursday to deploy a statewide stay-at-home order, with New York following suit on Friday, after a power struggle between Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio.

Across the world, the case count is nearing 250,000, with the death toll rising past 10,000. On Thursday, Italy’s death toll officially surpassed China’s, and the government was forced to tighten already strict lockdown measures to contain the casualty count.

The United Kingdom also moved to lock down the country, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordering the closure of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has requested citizens heed a curfew of 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, but has
