Bill would compel universities to follow SCOTUS affirmative action ban

Two prominent Republican lawmakers have proposed a bill that would compel universities to follow the recent Supreme Court ruling banning affirmative action by creating a new arm of the government charged with enforcement.

Sen. J.D. Vance of Ohio and Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana recently introduced the College Admissions Accountability Act, which would establish a “Special Inspector General for Unlawful Discrimination in Higher Education.”

The proposal follows the June decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that outlawed using race as a factor in college admissions.

“This bill creates the means necessary to enforce the court’s decision and hold colleges and universities accountable for illegal discrimination on the basis of race,” Vance told the Washington Free Beacon. His office declined to comment to The College Fix.
