TITLE 11–BANKRUPTCY

CHAPTER 9– ADMINISTRATION

Sub Chapter II – General Provisions

Sec. 923. Notice

    There shall be given notice of the commencement of a case under this 
chapter, notice of an order for relief under this chapter, and notice of 
the dismissal of a case under this chapter. Such notice shall also be 
published at least once a week for three successive weeks in at least 
one newspaper of general circulation published within the district in 
which the case is commenced, and in such other newspaper having a 
general circulation among bond dealers and bondholders as the court 
designates.

(Pub. L. 95-598, Nov. 6, 1978, 92 Stat. 2623.)


                      Historical and Revision Notes

                         legislative statements

    Section 923 of the House amendment represents a compromise with 
respect to the notice provisions contained in comparable provisions of 
the House bill and Senate amendment. As a general matter, title 11 
leaves most procedural issues to be determined by the Rules of 
Bankruptcy Procedure. Section 923 of the House amendment contains 
certain important aspects of procedure that have been retained from 
present law. It is anticipated that the Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure 
will adopt rules similar to the present rules for chapter IX of the 
Bankruptcy Act [chapter 9 of former title 11].


                         house report no. 95-595

    The notice provisions in section 923 are significantly more sparse 
than those provided under section 85(d) of chapter IX [section 405(d) of 
former title 11]. The exact contours of the notice to be given under 
chapter 9 are left to the Rules. Because the Rules deal with notice in a 
municipal case (Rule 9-14), and because section 405(d) of title IV of 
the bill continues those Rules in effect to the extent not inconsistent 
with the bill, the notice provisions of current law and Rules would 
continue to apply.
