UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT DECISIONS REGARDING DBE'S AND ALTERNATIVE ACTION PLANS. ADMINISTRATIVE SUBCOMMITTEE ON LEGAL AFFAIRS OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE ON ADMINISTRATION
Supreme Court decisions and judges written opinions with regard to minority set asides and preferential treatment without prior evidence of discrimination are discussed. Cases noted are the City of Richmond vs. J.A. Croson (the only bidder on a city project who had no provisions for minorities, but was to employ a minority firm for one aspect of the project which would cost more than his original bid on the project, thus he agreed to honor the contract using the minority firm if the city would allow him to increase the original bid, but this was rejected by the city) and Fullilove which upheld the right of Congress to establish preferential programs based on race without prior findings of discrimination.
