WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee has created a new subcommittee focused on federal courts and the bankruptcy litigation system.
The new Subcommittee on Bankruptcy and the Courts is one of the new subgroups created by splitting up the former Administrative Oversight and the Courts Subcommittee. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., named chairman of the new subcommittee, said the new configuration will allow lawmakers to better address the needs of people in the bankruptcy system and help them resolve their disputes “fairly, efficiently and at a minimum of cost and inconvenience to all concerned.”
