"In my view, no American, particularly in times of such economic hardship, should have this burdensome requirement of the so-called means-test imposed upon them," said Leahy. "The bankruptcy system was established to protect Americans and give them a fresh start."

That legislation was approved in the House 407-1 on Tuesday.

The Senate adjourned on Thursday night and is set to reconvene at 2 p.m. on Monday.
