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. If this happens the Equal Rights Amendment will be ratified by Illinois. 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.

Biden announces he will not run for President in 2016
I’m not entirely sure I understood his opening remarks, which were both intensely personal and a brief nuts and bolts explanation of “the process.” However the conclusion of his remarks, made in the White House Rose Garden came early: “Unfortunately I believe we’re out of time, the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination.” Or, as he put it, the “window” had closed.
Looking ahead to the race that will culmination in November 2016, the most interesting comment was Mr. Biden’s fierce defense of the Obama record. Arguing that the nation (under Obama’s leadership) was on the “cusp of resurgence,” Biden said
This party, our nation would be making a tragic mistake if we walk away or attempt to undo the Obama legacy. …Democrats should not only defend this record and protect this record, they should run on this record.
In plain English, Hillary Clinton should run for Obama’s third term.
