Gallagher Applauds Ruling Banning Affirmative Action

SACRAMENTO – Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher (Yuba City) issued the following statement applauding the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that banned the use of race in college admissions: 

“Treating people differently based on the color of their skin is wrong no matter what. Hiring and college admissions decisions should be based on each individual’s qualifications, not their race. California has led the way by rejecting affirmative action and the Supreme Court has rightfully given everyone an equal opportunity at higher education. Today’s decision is a victory for our values of equality and opportunity.”
