08 Jan: Buono Calls Upon Federal Government To Keep Title Ix Intact

TRENTON – The State Senate today approved a resolution sponsored by Senator Barbara Buono that urges the US Department of Education to refrain from weakening federal Title IX statutes.

“Title IX has been critical in ensuring that women have access to athletics programs at American colleges and universities for the past 35 years,” said Senator Buono, D-Middlesex. “The US Department of Education’s decision to weaken these protections opens the door for some schools to reinstitutionalize discrimination in sports.”
