Ironically, Nixon had campaigned against Johnson’s Great Society Program and was not considered a supporter of affirmative action. In June 1969, the Department of Labor issued the revised Philadelphia Plan, which was “no watered-down version of its predecessor . . ”36 The goal of this plan was to increase minority hiring in the construction industry so that it eventually would reach proportional representation. Prospective federal contractors were required to submit with their bids their minority hiring targets within a range.

Nicholas Mills notes, “Contradicting its 1971 Griggs v. 46 It was to counteract the effect of such cases on affirmative action that the Civil Rights Bill of 1990 was introduced. President Bush called it a “quota bill” and, despite the bill’s overwhelming support in Congress, vetoed it (in the House there was over two-thirds support for the bill, but in the Senate there was one vote less than two-thirds). In the following year the compromise Civil Rights Act of 1991 was passed. The 1991 law shifted back the burden of proof in disparate-impact discrimination cases to the employer, but not without giving leeway to the employer to demonstrate that such impact or presumed discrimination was due to the nature of a job and business necessity.

Furthermore, the 1972 law strengthened the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (eeoc), which the 1964 law had created for the implementation of Title VII. The eeoc’s initial charge was to investigate and conciliate and also to file amicus curiae briefs, which meant that it could not be a party to an employment discrimination suit in court for correcting such discrimination, but it could instead volunteer advice to the court. The 1972 act empowered the eeoc to file a suit directly against an employer in violation of the nondiscrimination provisions of the law.
