With the Supreme Court yet to decide on the constitutionality of President Joe Biden’s student-loan forgiveness, the House voted Wednesday to disapprove of the program under the Congressional Review Act.

Lawmakers voted 218-203 to roll back the Education Department’s rule that would have seen loan obligations reduced by up to $20,000 for borrowers who make less than $125,000 per year. The Congressional Review Act allows the first branch to check administrative agency actions. It will now go to the Senate, where it requires only a simple majority to pass.

Biden will veto the measure if it reaches his desk. Still, Republicans thought it important to put Democrats on the record, many of whom have skirted vocally supporting the debt-forgiveness program.

Two Democrats — Representative Jared Golden (D., Maine) and Representative Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (D., Wash.) — joined Republicans in supporting the measure.
