U.S. House Passes Comprehensive Bankruptcy Bill

From Fox News:

A 302-126 vote by the House sent the legislation to President Bush, who said he was eager to sign the measure, the biggest rewrite of the bankruptcy code in a quarter-century.

After eight years of strenuous efforts by congressional backers, banks and credit card companies, the legislation was catapulted toward enactment starting earlier this year. The legislation, which garnered some Democratic votes, cleared the Senate last month on a 74-25 vote.

The measure would require people with incomes above a certain level to pay credit-card charges, medical bills and other obligations under a court-ordered bankruptcy plan.

Here is a link to the latest version of the bill (S. 256) from GPO Access:

Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (Reported in House)
