This site has the "Chairman's Mark" for the "RELIEF" tax act mentioned earlier. It turns out that "RELIEF" stands for Restoring Earnings to Lift Individuals and Empower Families. I am not for these acronym-named laws, but I think REWARD act is more like it: Really Enriches Wealthy, Aristocrat Republican Donors.

But it does have some good things for the student-debtor world, including an increase in the phase-out range for deducting student loan interest, and an elimination of the 60-month rule that no one can quite figure out. So hopefully something like the chairman's mark will be the final bill when it comes to these matters of concern to us.
