WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court is about to hear arguments over President Joe Biden’s student debt relief plan.

It’s a plan that impacts millions of borrowers who could see their loans wiped away or reduced.

Republican-appointed judges have kept the Democratic president’s plan from going into effect.

It’s unclear how the court will respond. The court is dominated 6-3 by conservatives.

The justices have scheduled two hours of arguments in the case Tuesday, though it’ll probably go longer.

The public can listen in on the court’s website beginning at 10 a.m. Eastern.

The court is hearing challenges by two students and by six Republican-led states: Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina.
