Bill To House
Pass A Stricter Municipal
Bankruptcy Measure By
WASHINGTON, May 1. -)
The Senate today passed and re-
turned to the House a modified Mu-
nicipal Bankruptcy Relief Bill au-
thorizing more than 2,000 debt-rid-
den cities and taxing units to petition
the courts for approval of refinancing
The vote was 45 to 28.
Senators Couzens and Vandenberg
joined 10 other Republicans and 33
Democrats in supporting the bill,
which was opposed by 14 Republicans
and 14 Democrats.
Stricter than the bill passed by the
House in the special session, the
measure approved was a substitute
offered by Senator Patrick A. Mc-
Carran, Nevada Democrat, embody-
ing changes having the indorsement
of the Administration.
It would permit the cities to peti-
tion the court for scaling down their
debts if they could get holders of 51
per cent of their obligations to agree
on a plan.
Before the plan could become op-
erative 66 2-3 per cent of the amounts
in each class of obligation and 75
per cent of the aggregate claims
would have to cc~rsent to it.
Under the House bill the consent of
holders of only 30 per cent of the
outstanding debt is required to in-
itiate a plan before the court assumes
jurisdiction and the approval of only
66 2-3 per cent of holders of the ag-
gregate amount of claims before the
plan takes effect.
