18 CFR Ch. XIII

Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: As a nonregulatory agency, TVA originates few regulations. TVA 
will submit a final regulation which will revise the requirements 
applicable to the construction and maintenance of obstructions in the 
Tennessee River system and codify policies related to management of 
shoreline land under the jurisdiction of TVA. TVA has previously 
submitted, together with other Federal agencies, proposed regulations 
implementing title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, section 504 of 
the Rehabilitation Act of 1972, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975 
related to the definitions of ``program or activity'' and ``program.'' 
TVA is therefore publishing a regulatory agenda in voluntary compliance 
with Executive Order No. 12866.

3751. NONDISCRIMINATION IN FEDERALLY ASSISTED PROGRAMS OF TVA -- 
EFFECTUATION OF TITLE VI OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 42 USC 794; 42 USC 2000d to 2000d-7; 42 USC 6101 to 
6107; EO 12250

CFR Citation: 18 CFR 1302; 18 CFR 1307; 18 CFR 1309

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Department of Justice proposes to make amendments to its 
regulations implementing title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 
(title VI), section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Age 
Discrimination Act). Together, these statutes prohibit discrimination 
on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, and age in 
programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. In 
1988, the Civil Rights Restoration Act (CRRA) added definitions of 
``program or activity'' and ``program'' to title VI and added a 
definition of ``program or activity'' to section 504 and the Age 
Discrimination Act. The added definitions were designed to clarify the 
broad scope of coverage of recipients' programs or activities under 
these statutes. The promulgation of this proposed regulation explicitly 
incorporates the CRRA's definition of ``program or activity'' and 
``program'' into the Department's title VI, section 504, and Age 
Discrimination Act regulations. The Department's proposed regulation 
will be published as part of a joint Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 
involving up to 24 Federal agencies, including TVA.
