You find the new bill introduced by Senator Crowell here:


Among  other things, the new bill will include earned income credits as being exempt from creditors. This can be helpful in filing for bankruptcy when the tax refund comes in and someone has to turn over a portion of the tax refund to the trustee. The Earned Income Tax Credit will be exempt. The remaining part of the tax refund might be exempt by applying other exemption or by planning the time of the bankruptcy filing.
