DOVER, Del. (AP) – Attorneys for the Boy Scouts of America have submitted another revised reorganization plan as they continue to work toward a goal of emerging from bankruptcy this fall.

A plan filed late last week increases the amount of money from the BSA and its local councils that would go into a trust fund for survivors of child sex abuse.

But the BSA appears to be backing away from a controversial settlement with one of its insurers that was roundly criticized by attorneys for abuse victims.

A hearing regarding the latest proposal is scheduled for July 20.
