Nebraska Gov.-elect Jim Pillen praised Peterson’s efforts in challenging the debt relief program.

“The court’s decision today to halt Biden’s illegal executive order is a win for the rule of law,” Pillen said in a statement. “The federal government should not be bailing out college graduates on the backs of hardworking Nebraskans.”
