The Nation

May 21, 1986

A Senate committee, heeding criticism of civil rights activists, rejected President Reagan's nominee for chief enforcement officer at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Three Republicans joined the seven Democrats on the Labor and Human Resources Committee in the 10-5 vote against the nomination of Jeffrey Zuckerman to move from chief of staff to general counsel of the commission. Civil rights activists argued that Zuckerman's opposition to affirmative action disqualified him from heading the enforcement division, and groups representing the elderly questioned his dedication to protecting older workers from age discrimination.
