Letter to Assemblyman Del Toro from Victor S. Bahou, July 14, 1980

Letter to Assemblyman Angelo Del Toro from Victor S. Bahou regarding impact of Executive Order 40.1, 1980. Del Toro was concerned that Affirmative Action had hindered the Latino community, rather than helping Hispanics join the work force.

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.
