Title

Letter from Paul Trible to William Leftwich

Description

This is a letter from a member of the US Senate to Dr. William Leftwich, Vice President for Student Affairs at the University of Richmond. This letter was written in response to a previous letter from Dr. Leftwich which stated that he opposed section 2568 of the Civil Rights Act (1984). The measure was tabled towards the end of the 98th Congress being offered as Amendment to the Continuing Resolution. The senator agreed with Dr. Leftwich about S. 2568 going above and beyond overturning the Grove City (Title IX) Supreme Court decision. The senator said that the bill was drafted hastily and was not properly vetted and therefore was passed unamended. The Senate Labor and Human Resources Committee did not have a chance to amend the bill either. He believes that the bill will be revisited on the next session of Congress with a more thorough approach.
