(Pub. L. 98-457, title III, Sec. 307, Oct. 9, 1984, 98 Stat. 1761.)                         References in Text      The Age Discrimination Act of 1975, referred to in subsecs. (a)(1),  (b)(2), is title III of Pub. L. 94-135, Nov. 28, 1975, 89 Stat. 728, as  amended, which is classified generally to chapter 76 (Sec. 6101 et seq.)  of this title. For complete classification of this Act to the Code, see  Short Title note set out under section 6101 of this title and Tables.     The Education Amendments of 1972, referred to in subsecs. (a)(1),  (b)(2), is Pub. L. 92-318, June 23, 1972, 86 Stat. 235, as amended.  Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is classified principally  to chapter 38 (Sec. 1681 et seq.) of Title 20, Education. For complete  classification of this Act to the Code, see Short Title note set out  under section 1001 of Title 20 and Tables.     The Civil Rights Act of 1964, referred to in subsecs. (a)(1),  (b)(2), is Pub. L. 88-352, July 2, 1964, 78 Stat. 241, as amended. Title  VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is classified generally to subchapter  V (Sec. 2000d et seq.) of this title. For complete classification of  this Act to the Code, see note set out under section 2000a of this title  and Tables.     This part, referred to in subsec. (a)(1), probably was intended to  be a reference to this title, meaning title III of Pub. L. 98-457 which  enacted this chapter, because title III was not divided into parts and  because similar references to programs or activities funded in whole or  in part with funds made available, referred to ``this title''.
