TITLE 23--HIGHWAYS

CHAPTER 3--GENERAL PROVISIONS


Sec. 324. Prohibition of discrimination on the basis of sex

No person shall on the ground of sex be excluded from participation
in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under
any program or activity receiving Federal assistance under this title or
carried on under this title. This provision will be enforced through
agency provisions and rules similar to those already established, with
respect to racial and other discrimination, under title VI of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964. However, this remedy is not exclusive and will not
prejudice or cut off any other legal remedies available to a
discriminatee.

280.)
