“I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.” - Thomas Jefferson “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” - Winston Churchill “This country has made more mistakes on indecision than the wrong decision.” - John F. Kennedy “This country cannot afford to be materially rich and spiritually poor.” - John F.

We respect that of others, without fearing it.” - Thomas Jefferson “The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.” - Abraham Lincoln

Bankruptcy Preference Amendment(s) Effective February 19, 2020

On August 23, 2019, the Small Business Reorganization Act (H.R. 3311; S. 1091) (the “SBRA”) was signed into law.  The law is effective 180-days following enactment, that is on February 19, 2020.
