BIRMINGHAM, Ala. May 9 (Reuters) - Alabama's Jefferson County expects to file a 'largely consensual' plan by late June to exit its record $4.2 billion municipal bankruptcy, a lawyer for the county said on Thursday.
'We are looking at a largely consensual plan by late June, a hearing in August, voting 30 days after approval, confirmation in October or November, (and to be) put in effect by no later than late December,' attorney Kenneth Klee told a U.S. bankruptcy judge in Birmingham.
'I believe we have made substantial progress toward a consensual agreement,' Klee said.
