We turn from subsidy to regulation as an alternative federal method of increasing the economic options of Negroes. In subsidies specific laws were not mentioned because there were so many, but in regulations a major statute can be pinpointed, the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is not necessary to dwell on its creation except to note the two main sections relevant in this chapter. First, the prohibition of discrimination in public accommodations was the center of the loudest southern outcry. Second, the prohibition of discrimination in the use of federal money and the threat to withhold funds so used were weakened at successive stages. President Kennedy did not include this at first, a House Judiciary Subcommittee added a tough section, the full committee diluted it, and the Senate added a number of exemptions from the ban and threat.
