Bill Nowling says the documents also made minor clarifications in how much pension benefits for city retirees would be cut.

The plan first was filed Feb. 21 in bankruptcy court. The city says further amendments are expected before an April 14 hearing.

The plan of adjustment has to be approved by federal Judge Steven Rhodes.

Orr is negotiating with the city's creditors on debt which he has said is $18 billion or more.
