<<Gov. Gary Locke is supporting the first major change to Initiative 200, so public colleges and universities could, once again, use race as one factor in admissions.

>>

Voters in Washington State approved an initiative that prohibited race discriminastion in public employment, awarding public contract and in public college admissions, but Democrats want to bring it back.


No doubt any law they adopt will again be reffered to voters by referendum before it has a chance to go into effect.


I especially like the suggestions that it's important that a law that prohibits race discrimination should be brought "into conformance" with Supreme Court interpretations that permit race discrimination in college admissions.
