This AP story on Title IX in the Washington Times has the usual slant toward defenders of the existing quota system, but also some interesting procedural developments:

Supporters of the status quo for Title IX were dealt a setback yesterday when a Bush administration commission issued procedures that stated its final report "will not include minority views." Commissioner Donna de Varona said the procedures are "tantamount to a gag order."
The Education Department's 15-member Commission on Opportunity in Athletics will debate and vote on as many as 24 recommendations during public meetings today and tomorrow. Several commissioners have said they expect the panel will vote to weaken the 31-year-old gender equity law that greatly increased female participation in sports....



I suppose AP intended to say "weaken the quota"...

Here's the story's entire depiction of those who want to change current enforcement:

Critics say the law has punished male athletes to provide more opportunities for women


All done!

Impossible to know if this is an editing or writing problem.
