FINDINGS AND PURPOSE Pub.

"(3) Because the bankruptcy system is interconnected, the result has been a system of fees, including filing fees, quarterly fees in chapter 11 [ 11 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.] cases, and other fees, that together fund the courts, judges, United States trustees, and chapter 7 [ 11 U.S.C. 701 et seq.] case trustees necessary for the bankruptcy system to function. "(4) This Act [see Short Title of 2021 Amendment note set out under section 1 of this title] and the amendments made by this Act-"(A) ensure adequate funding of the United States trustees, supports the preservation of existing bankruptcy judgeships that are urgently needed to handle existing and anticipated increases in business and consumer caseloads, and provides long-overdue additional compensation for chapter 7 case trustees whose caseloads include chapter 11 reorganization cases that were converted to chapter 7 liquidation cases; and"(B) confirm the longstanding intention of Congress that quarterly fee requirements remain consistent across all Federal judicial districts. "(b) PURPOSE.-The purpose of this Act and the amendments made by this Act is to further the long-standing goal of Congress of ensuring that the bankruptcy system is self-funded, at no cost to the taxpayer."
