Private School Loans Dischargeable in Bankruptcy?

There is current legislation before both the US Senate and US House of Representatives that would allow private school loans to be discharged in bankruptcy, as most of them were before the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. Legislators are reasoning that there is a strong interest in not allowing federally backed student loans to be discharged in bankruptcy, but these reasons do not apply to private school loans and so they are rethinking the laws. The New York Times wrote an interesting article on the topic.
