Whereas there have been abuses of hiring procedures under the guise of re-organization and/or business necessity,

Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to work with the Chancellor's Office and the Board of Governors to change the Title 5 affirmative action regulations in ways to close the loopholes of "business necessity" and "college reorganization," which have been excuses for ignoring the usual affirmative action hiring procedures at some colleges.

Summary: 
Direct the Executive Committee to work with the Chancellor's Office and the Board of Governors to change the Title 5 affirmative action regulations in ways to close the loopholes of "business necessity" and "college reorganization," which have been excuses for ignoring the usual affirmative action hiring procedures at some colleges.
Recommendation: 
Probably need to rewrite this one to bring it into the 21st century if new EEO regs don't address the stated concern.
Status Report: 

New EEO regulations will be approved in 2010 or 2011 that will address this issue.
