ABI Executive Director Sam Gerdano talks with Jay Bender of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP (Birmingham, Ala.), Kristina M. Stanger of Nyemaster Goode, P.C. (Des Moines, Iowa) and John H. Thompson of McGuireWoods LLP (Washington, D.C.) about proposals to equalize the means test treatment for veterans who seek chapter 7 relief. Bender, Stanger and Thompson, who are part of the legislative committee of ABI's Veterans' Task Force, talk about the problem of including VA disability payments as income and efforts to correct this disparity in the Code, such as the HAVEN Act.
