Civil Rights Legislation Sen. Kennedy and Sen. Danforth, key figures in the compromise negotiations over the 1991 Civil Rights bill, discussed the civil rights legislation with reporters shortly after the president signed the bill in a ceremony at the White House. Sen. Kennedy commended the president for his statement that the civil rights bill was a move to bring people together in the nation, and said he felt no reason to doubt the president’s sincerity in signing the bill. The bill’s signing occurred the day after a draft policy statement from the White House surfaced which proposed ending the use of racial preferences and quotas in White House personnel selection. Sen. Danforth called the draft policy statement “regressive,” and responded to questions from reporters on the civil rights bill. close
