Civil Rights Act of 1984. Joint Hearings before the Committee on Education and Labor and the Subcommittee on Civil and Constitutional Rights of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth Congress, Second Session on H.R. 5490. To Clarify the Application of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.; Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on the Judiciary.
The hearings recorded here were convened in order to examine legislation proposed in response to the Supreme Court's decision in Grove City College v. Bell, which was considered to narrow significantly the scope of coverage of Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, and the 1975 Age Discrimination Act. Committee members expressed concern that the Supreme Court's interpretation of the language set forth in these statutes might prevent continuation of "two decades of enforcement by four presidents of both parties." The proposed legislation was offered to reaffirm that enforcement record. Testimony for and against the bill was given by government officials, legislators, educators, and representatives of various civic organizations. (RDN)
