Anne M. Pauker, State Division of Human Rights, statement to Assembly Subcommittee on Affirmative Action, 1979

Anne M. Pauker, State Division of Human Rights, statement before Assembly Subcommittee on Affirmative Action, New York, July 12, 1979. Pauker discusses the need for more Latinos to be employed in state government, and the necessity for sanctions to be applied to agencies not making an effort to comply with affirmative action guidelines.

Executive Order 40 (1976) established a New York State government-wide affirmative action mandate and required every state agency to draft a plan for the achievement of equal employment opportunities for ethnic minorities and women. The following year, in response to the same executive order, the Department of Civil Service established a Merit System Affirmative Action Office. In 1981, all state agencies were required to submit a report detailing their affirmative action plans, and how the plans had been fulfilled.
