Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Tuesday, March 22, 1988 Page 15 Civil Rights Restoration Veto Likely To Lose In Congress WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate and House leaders say they have the votes to override President Reagan's veto and win a four- year struggle to restore full civil rights protection to women, minorities, the elderly and the disabled. The Civil Rights Restoration Act passed both chambers earlier this year by lopsided margins far greater than the two-thirds majority needed to override a presidential veto. Supporters and opponents said there was little chance the veto would be sustained. "We expect a vote to override," House Speaker Jim Wright, D-Texas, said Monday. The House passed the bill 315-98 and Republican head-counters said only a dozen members at most were expected to move into the president's corner. The Senate vote was 75-14 in favor, with seven absentee cosponsors who would have voted for the measure had they been there. A leadership aide said there were more than enough votes for an override "if all goes as planned and hoped." Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, leader of the Senate opposition, said he and the president had fought an uphill battle. He said some senators planned to switch sides but added, "Let's face it, some people are afraid to vote against a civil rights bill." Vice President George Bush on Monday indicated last-minute support for the Reagan veto, saying the legislation "is imperfect and the imperfections should be corrected." The restoration act forbids the distribution of federal funds to entire institutions, state and local government agencies and many corporations if any part of them practices discrimination. It was spurred by a 1984 Supreme Court ruling that civil Sen. Orrin Hatch Led support of veto rights laws applied only to a specific program or activity receiving federal aid. The government could not cut off money to a college, for example, if discrimination occurred in a department that did not receive such aid. Supporters of the legislation say it restores civil rights laws to the way they were interpreted before the court challenge mounted by tiny Grove City (Pa.) College. Religious schools, many of them fundamentalist Christian, opposed the bill. Reagan said it would impinge on religious freedom and vastly expand the power of the federal government over churches, synagogues, corporations and state and local government agencies. Congress had tried since the Supreme Court decision to pass a corrective measure but became enmeshed in various controversies involving regulation and abortion.

Rober Sons, Idavi Deno, broad bipartisan support and many Republicans asked the president not to veto it. An eleventh-hour push by the conservative Moral Majority group resulted in thousands of phone calls, letters and telegrams urging lawmakers to uphold the veto. The liberal People for the American Way responded Monday with newspaper ads warning that "the Far Right could defeat civil rights" unless people call their representatives and "tell them your tax money must not pay for discrimination." The restoration act says entire institutions and government agencies must not discriminate if any program or activity within them receives federal aid. Entire corporations are covered if they provide a public service such as health care or if the aid goes to the business as a whole, as in the Chrysler bailout. Farmers receiving crop subsidies, people using food stamps and other individuals receiving federal assistance would not be subject to regulation. An institution's refusal to perform or pay for abortions would not be considered discriminatory. The Supreme Court decision applied specifically to Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments barring sex discrimination in federally funded education programs. It was interpreted also to cover the 1964 Civil Rights Act barring racial discrimination in federally-assisted programs; the 1973 Rehabilitation Act barring discrimination against the handicapped in any program or activity receiving federal aid; and the 1975 Age Discrimination Act barring employment discrimination against older people. Abused Children Court to decide if they can sue public officials WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court is considering whether abused children should have the right to sue public officials for failing to protect them from their parents. But the justices have decided to avoid another children's rights issue: whether public school students enjoy any constitutional protection against paddling or other corporal punishment by teachers and administrators. The court announced Monday that it will tackle the parental abuse issue in the case of a Wisconsin boy, Joshua De- Shaney, who suffered serious and permanent brain damage from beatings by his father. The boy's suit accuses social workers and officials of gross negligence in ignoring evidence that he was being brutally victimized. A lower court threw out the suit. A high court ruling is not expected until 1989 on whether to revive the suit against the Winnebago County, Wis., Department of Social Services and two of its employees. The agency was accused of violating the rights of Joshua by failing to rescue him from his father's beatings, even though it allegedly had known about the abuse since 1983, when the child was 4 years old. Joshua has been institutionalized since 1984, suffering from injuries that destroyed half his brain and left him profoundly retarded. The boy's father, Randy De- Shaney, since has been convicted of child abuse and sentenced to two to four years in prison. DeShaney's ex-wife, Melody, sued the social services officials on grounds they violated the child's constitutional right not to be deprived of liberty without due process. Mrs. DeShaney was divorced from her husband and living in Cheyenne. Wyo., when she was informed her son had suffered serious brain damage. De- Shaney had custody of his son.
