Two Indiana borrowers asked the US Supreme Court to halt President Joe Biden’s student-loan relief plan, saying his administration is overstepping its authority and forcing them to pay higher state taxes.

The emergency filing, submitted to Justice Amy Coney Barrett, comes 12 days after she summarily rejected a similar bid by a Wisconsin taxpayers group. Barrett is assigned to handle emergency matters from the Chicago-based 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals, which refused to block the program last week.
