OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY-Continued

Intragovernmental funds—Continued

ADVANCES AND REIMBURSEMENTS-Continued

The role and responsibilities of the President's Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity are being reviewed in relation to title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which established a national policy making unlawful the practice of discrimination in employment. Title VII provided for the establishment of an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to investigate any alleged violations; and the budget provides funds for staffing and operating the Commission. The 1965 and 1966 estimates of agency contributions required for the support of the committee are, therefore, tentative and will be revised, following completion of the current review, to reflect actual program plans and operating requirements.
