Re: Proposed Technical Amendments to the Bankruptcy Code Regarding BAPCPA

Gentlemen:

The American Bar Association Section of Business Law (the "Section") is pleased to submit the enclosed comments to the Senate and House Judiciary Committees regarding proposed technical amendments to the Bankruptcy Code to correct certain errors contained in the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 ("BAPCPA"). Although we understand that the House recently passed a more limited bankruptcy technical corrections bill, H.R. 6198, in late September, we encourage you to consider including the additional technical corrections outlined in the enclosed comments in the final version of any legislation that Congress may decide to enact in this area.

Please Read the Full Letter

Sincerely,

Lynne B. Barr
Chair, ABA Section of Business Law
