Good morning Mike:
The last bill I'm aware of with any momentum behind it was the Boost Bill, but it did not allow payment of student loan debt with 529s. I've heard this discussed at industry conferences, but the only thing I can find at a Congressional level is some discussion from back in 2009. You can poke around our Legislative Corner for recent bills that would or did impact 529 plans, but there is nothing recent that I'm aware of that would allow payment of student loans.
