The Bilingual Education Act is clearly a work-in-progress, and related issues are likely to be found in the media and on the ballots for many years to come.

There's one main clause, in skeleton form.

  • Act is a work-in-progress, and related issues.

And

  • are likely to be found in the media and on the ballots for many years to come

is used to describe related issues.

I don't understand what's the usage of for many years to come?

The phrase would be better structured like this:

The Bilingual Education Act is clearly a work in progress; related issues are likely to be found, in the media and on the ballots, for many years to come.

The usage of "for many years to come" applies to "related issues are likely to be found". You could also say it like this:

Related issues are likely to be found for many years into the future.
