Important News for America’s Small Business Community

Rolling Meadows, IL – June 15, 2022  Throughout its 127 years of existence, the Commercial Law League of America has consistently promoted and supported the fair, equitable, and efficient administration of collection and bankruptcy laws for all parties-in-interest. On April 7, 2022, the Senate passed amended S. 3823, the “Bankruptcy Threshold Adjustment and Technical Corrections Act” (the “Act”) and on June 8, 2022, the Act was passed by the House. It is now on its way to the President for signature.

The Act reinstates the threshold debt limit of $7.5 million for Subchapter V of Chapter 11, retroactive to the original expiration date of March 28, 2022. The Act also increases the debt limit for Chapter 13 bankruptcy eligibility to $2.75 million and removes the distinction between secured and unsecured debt for that calculation.

The CLLA affords its members the opportunity to make connections and form long lasting relationships with attorneys, agencies and law lists across the United States AND beyond. I have learned points of law and best practices from some of the most experienced, knowledgeable professionals in the industry.
