Of Counsel Elizabeth Stephens authors an article published by the American Bankruptcy Institute Journal titled, “New Congress, Familiar Legislation.” Ms. Stephens discusses several pieces of legislation, focused on consumer and business bankruptcy, that are being reviewed by the 117th Congress as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the article, Ms. Stephens explains how previous bills that were introduced in the 116th Congress will most likely be reintroduced and favored by the 117th Congress, along with several new bills aimed to help families and businesses survive the economic repercussions of the pandemic. “The 117th Congress is off and running, and legislation has been introduced right out of the gate that could result in bankruptcy reform. A review of the currently proposed legislation reveals that it is largely in step with President Biden’s COVID-19 relief proposals and would facilitate economic recovery. Further, the expected reintroduction of legislation aimed at the Bankruptcy Code would serve the same purposes,” states Ms. Stephens.
