CLLA’s 2023 POLICY POSITIONS
OVERVIEW

Bankruptcy Venue Reform
The League supports a rebalancing of how commercial Chapter 11 cases are distributed throughout the country. Thus, it proposes legislation reform that limits venue to only where the debtor is headquartered or where its principal assets are located. In addition, with respect to affiliate filings, to make sure that subsidiaries follow parent-entity into bankruptcy (and not vice versa).

Creditors’ Rights and Bankruptcy Reform:

Student Loan Dischargeability Reform
The League has adopted a proposed amendment to Bankruptcy Code Section 523(a)(8) that reclassifies “undue hardship” as “substantial hardship” which sets forth objective financial benchmarks for determining whether a student loan debt that first became due more than 10 years prior to the filing of the bankruptcy case is dischargeable. While other proposals focus on either eliminating Section 523(a)(8) altogether or limiting dischargeability to only private loans, the CLLA’s proposal was reached through a compromise between its Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Sections and achieves the CLLA’s key mission of fairness and equality in application and administration of laws.

Bankruptcy Subchapter V
The League is currently reviewing and expects to provide comment or a policy position on increasing the Subchapter V debt limit to $11,097,350.00, and whether the increase should be permanent.

PLEASE NOTE: Attendees are participating on behalf of the CLLA (i.e., to advocate and support the policy position that you sign up for) and are expected to refrain from advancing any personal issues/agendas or taking any contradicting positions. To ensure the greatest likelihood of success for the event, and advancing these positions, the CLLA requests that individuals not able to advocate your selected issue enthusiastically refrain from participating. Failure to comply with this request may result in an attendee being denied the ability to participate. Please contact Dan Kerrick at (302) 656-7540 if you have questions about any of the CLLA’s positions.
