Major Bankruptcy Revision Poised to Pass Congress

NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with NPR's senior Washington editor Ron Elving about the bankruptcy revision bill now under consideration in Congress. After falling to defeat in previous years, it looks like a major change in bankruptcy law will pass Congress this time, despite the strong misgivings of Democrats. The law will make it more difficult to have personal debts forgiven after declaring bankruptcy.
