WASHINGTON, D.C. ( & KRNV) -- In a blow to affirmative action programs, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Michigan's controversial ban on racial preferences in state public university admissions.

In Tuesday's ruling, the justices ruled Michigan voters had the right to change their state Constitution to prohibit public colleges and universities from considering race in admissions decisions. The justices said a lower federal court was wrong to set aside the change as discriminatory.

California, Florida, Washington, Arizona, Nebraska, Oklahoma and New Hampshire have similar bans.
