ABSTRACT
The article comments on the implications of U.S. President Ronald Reagan's approval of the Senate Judiciary Committee's compromise bill expanding the Voting Rights Act. The language in the Act assures the right of a protected class to equal access to the political system. A major issue is whether the Justice Department will follow the principles of Reagan or the principles of his adversaries, in interpreting the law's vagueness.
