Much of government consists of reckoning with the consequences, intentional or otherwise, of public policy. This week our news providers treat several examples of that process. The Washington Post examines some of the litigation spawned by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Los Angeles Times looks at the difficulties faced by California state agencies that must implement the recently upheld rollback of affirmative action. The Times also reports on a study that foresees awful consequences for the communities in Los Angeles affected by welfare reform. And National Journal includes pieces on the alleged benefits of giving free TV time to political candidates and on the aftermath of one closing of a major military base.
