Polis’s legislation, titled the Students Over Special Interests Act, would repeal the GOP tax law and redirect the additional taxpayer money toward erasing student loan debt and making college more affordable.

His bill is the first that would move to entirely reverse the GOP tax cuts and is unlikely to receive serious consideration while Republicans control both chambers of Congress.
