The meeting comes a day after the House voted in favor of repealing Department of Education regulations which, according to House Republicans, would lower higher education costs for students. Democrats criticized the legislation, arguing that repealing the regulations would not lower college tuition. 

The Democrat-controlled Senate is likely to kill the House's legislation.
