Possible Vote on Bankruptcy “Violence” Amendment in Senate

The Senate could pass a version of bankruptcy reform legislation allowing Democrats to offer an amendment by Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) that would bar anti-abortion extremists from discharging any legal judgments against them by filing for bankruptcy.

According to one source, Republicans plan to offer two amendments, one of which would require individuals convicted of any type of violence to pay legal judgments against them regardless of whether they declare bankruptcy.
