Sen. Moran Statement on 50th Anniversary of Senate Consideration of the Civil Rights Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which came before the full Senate for debate this week 50 years ago:

“Fifty years ago, the Senate began consideration of what became the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The path to enactment proved difficult, overcoming nearly two months of deliberation before final passage. Yet with excellent leadership and bipartisan cooperation, this chamber achieved one of the most significant legislative accomplishments in our nation’s history.

“The quest for racial equality did not end with the Civil War, the Civil Rights Act or the election of our first African-American president. It is an ongoing project, in which we strive to fulfill the ideals that ‘all men are created equal’ in order to create a just society. We are a better nation because of the Civil Rights Act, and I am hopeful the days of passing historic legislation that improves the lives of all Americans are not in the Senate’s past.”
