N.Y. State Bias Board Official Urges Passage by Congress of F.e.p.c. Legislation

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Passage by Congress of the Ives Bill, providing for a federal Fair Employment Practice Commission, was urged today by Charles H. Tuttle, counsel for the New York State Temporary Commission Against Discrimination.

Mr. Tuttle spoke at a luncheon meeting of the New York chapter of the American Jewish Committee devoted to a discussion of “The Fight Against Discrimination.” He described the New York State legislation barring discrimination in employment as a milestone on the road towards social justice and recalled that several other states have adopted similar legislation patterned on the New York law.
