Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Reform – Judiciary Committe Vote Today

The House Judiciary Committee will meet at 1 p.m. ET today to mark up (consider) HR 200, the “Helping Families Save Their Homes in Bankruptcy Act.” At the time of the mark up their will be a manager’s amendment offered by Chairman Conyers that will embody the language changes agreed to in the Citigroup discussions and I expect there will be a few other changes as well.

You may watch a webcast of the mark up by going to:

The bill is expected to pass by a narrow margin; we don’t expect there will be any Republican votes in favor and we expect there may be a Democrat or two who opposes.
