Overwhelming' approval is a foregone conclusion. the House having passed last February, L'ilO to loll, a bill that was revised in only minor ways by the Senate during ils historic three-month debate. Without waiting until July 4th as some sources had indicated. President. Johnson is expected to sign the bill into law speedily in hopes it can start easing racial tensions. Many of its { Southern critics, however, prc- i diet it will only inflame the situation. For more than a year the bill was the subject of intensive negotiating in both the House and Senate before it finally emerged as a compromise package supported by Democratic and Republican leaders in Congress. The bill wraps into one big bundle a number of measures designed to help Negroes achieve equably in nearly all phases of national life into which the federal government, can reach. It bars discrimination in employment practices—by both un- ions and employers and in ho lels. motels, restaurants. nw\ ies, and other places serving tlic public. It arms (lie government with powers to cut off federal funds for programs in which discrimination occurs 11 also grants new powers to the attorney general to speed desegregation of public schools and other public facilities, such as parks, playgrounds and libraries. It tightens provisions contained in the first civil rights law passed this century - in lfif>7 — aimed at prolceiing Negro voting rights. It also creates a community relations service designed to provide machinery for voluntary settlement, of racial disputes through mediation and conciliation. And it extends for four years the life of the Civil Rights Commission, with added powers RIGHTS BILL SUMMARY IS ON PAGE FIVE IK Ihe lime your Lake Charles American Press is delivered loday there may be a new civil rights law in Ihe United Sl/tte.x.
