The Education Department has halted 61 discrimination investigations against colleges and school districts in the year since the U.S. Supreme Court curtailed its powers to enforce civil rights laws, a congresswoman said. Rep. Claudine Schneider (R-R.I.), releasing a list of the suspended cases to two House committees, said, "almost certainly, these 61 suspended complaints represent only the tip of the iceberg." The House Education and Labor Committee and the Judiciary subcommittee on civil rights conducted the joint hearing on legislation to restore the enforcement powers.
