Contact Your Senator to Vote Against Senator Durbin’s 90/10 Amendment

Dear AACS Membership:

In our most recent communication to you asking you to reach out regarding the BDR veto override vote, we noted that more challenges are coming. They came quickly. Today, the Senate is debating the Fiscal Year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act. Senator Durbin (D-IL) has announced that he may attempt to offer an amendment that would change the 90/10 rule to 85/15 (and include veteran and military benefits in the 85). AACS strongly opposes the amendment. We need AACS member schools to reach out to their Senators asking them to oppose this amendment should it be offered. Please act TODAY.


This urgent call to action requires each of our member institutions to contact their respective Senator and urge them to vote against Senator Durbin’s 90/10 Amendment. 

We have made this process simple. Use the AACS Phone2Action system to contact your respective Representative. A form letter is already prepared for you that includes the message your Senator needs to hear. You just need to send it!

Take a moment NOW and click here to contact your Senators.

If you need any additional information or have any questions please contact

Thank you for your support at this critical time!
