Summary

Key provisions of the 1964 civil rights bill are explained and typical questions asked about it are answered. The major provisions of the bill are meant to assure all citizens, regardless of race, color, religion or national origin, their equal rights in voting, public accomodations, education, federally assisted programs, and employment. The attorney general and the justice department would be given new powers to initiate or intervene in suits aimed at desegregation in public facilities other than schools, where the injured party is unable to pursue the remedy. The attorney general is authorized to initiate or intervene in school desegregation cases. To expedite handling of cases filed under the 1957 and 1960 civil rights acts, the bill would authorize the attorney general or a defendant to ask for trial by a three-judge court, with appeal to the U.S. Supreme court. Two new agencies would be set up by the bill--an equal employment opportunity commission and a 6-man community relations service. The bill also extends the life of the U.S. Civil right commission another 4 years.
