The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978 deleted the prior insolvency requirement which had to be satisfied in order to qualify for filing a bankruptcy case under Chapter 11. There is no real suggestion in the legislative history as to the reason for this change. The Commission should consider whether or not there "should" be some threshold for Chapter 11 relief.
