House Committee passed the Equal Rights Amendment

The Equal Rights Amendment was passed out of committee on May 16th with a vote of 7 to 5. The next step is a vote in the IL House.

Then only one more state has to ratify the ERA and it will be sent to Congress to become an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In Illinois, we still have a chance to stop it.
