University of Baltimore Law Review



The author engages in a critical analysis of the busing moratorium statute promoted by the Nixon Administration and recently passed by Congress. He discusses recent judicial developments in the desegregation area that have precipitated enactment of the measure, and takes the position that the federal judiciary has promulgated a far too liberal interpretation of the fourteenth amendment in its zeal to achieve politically untenable social ends. He points out specific defects which render the statute substantially inadequate as a deterrent to further student transportation, and indicates the direction of future legislative solutions to the controversy.
