Transcript TITLE IX £) The House sent a clear message to the Reagan Administration and the Supreme Court on June 27 when it voted overwhelmingly to pass legislation protecting trie vitality of major* civil rights laws. il.R. 5490, known as "The Civil Rights Act of 1984," swept the House in a 375-32 vote, as harmful amendments to weaken the bill went down to defeat. Attention now turns to the Senate where opponents are trying to delay the companion bill, S. 2568, currently bogged down in the Labor and Human Resources Committee. The bills are a direct response to the Feb. 28 GROVE CITY COLLEGE v. SELL Supreme Court ruling that the ban on sex discrimination applies only to that part of the school receiving federal funds. Since federal dollars came to Grove City College only through students with federal financial aid grants, the financial aid office alone is subject to the anti-sex discrimination requirements under Title IX of the 1972 bJdu ua I. i on Amendments. Discrimination in the rest of the school, the Court ruled, would not be grounds for Title IX enfttreemcrtt action. The decision has already led to the Reagan Administration's abandonment of more than twenty enforcement act ions against colleges and universities. A major concern is that the Administration will now attack other civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination by recipients of federal dollars. Officials have already begun arguing tnat these laws should be viewed as narrowly as Title IX, applying the discrimination ban only to the specific "program or activity" receiving federal assistance. H.R. 5490 and S. 2568 would not only restore Title IX to its former strength, but also reaffirm the broad coverage of: Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act that bans discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in federally-financed assistance projects such as highways,; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that targets discrimination against the handicapped; and The Age Discrimination Act of 1975. Specifically, the bills delete the term "program or activity" in each of these statutes, substituting the word "recipient" so there is no mistake about congressional intent: an entire institution is prohibited from discriminating when any of its parts receive government funds. Sponsors of S. 2568 hope to bring it up for a floor vote by early September. Even with 63 co-sponsors it could be a tough battle to curtail delay tactics. Only a massive outpouring of grass roots support will ensure that this bill stays on track. ACTION: Call Sen. Bentsen's office 229-2595 and Sen, Tower 229-2766. Express your concern for passage of tne hill and you might even want to request a copy c.f the hill.
