Report of the Task Force on De-Regulation Initiatives.
Fishbein, Estelle A.; Blumer, Dennis H.
In response to a request by the Presidential Task Force on Regulatory Relief, this report offers specific recommendations for reform of federal regulations. A cover letter explains the constraints imposed by the recommended format: that the report is unable to address adequately the area of federal regulatory activity generating the most adverse criticism from college and university counsel--i.e., the present mode of enforcement of the laws, Executive Orders, and regulations pertaining to prohibited discrimination. The issues are not presented in priority order. The regulations addressed include: executive order for affirmative action in federal contracts; prohibition of sex discrimination in employment, and equity in pay; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; sexual harrassment in employment; debarment and suspension of eligibility for financial assistance; three federal student financial aid programs (National Direct Student Loans, College Work-Study, and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants); the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (privacy of student records); administrative procedures for reporting on all federal student assistance programs; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (sex discrimination, especially in athletics and employment); and Veterans Administration programs affecting colleges and universities (especially reporting requirements, course eligibility, aid payments, the 85-15 attendance rule, and overpayments). For each regulation covered, these elements are included in the report format: agency source of the rule, specific citation, description of problems, estimated cost, other possible impact, proposed solution, and name and address of originator.
