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.

Abortion group misleads 37th House District voters with endorsement
"I have no idea why they included my name on that list," State Rep. Margo McDermed (R-Mokena) told Illinois Review Monday. "I didn't return their required questionnaire, and they couldn't have based it on my voting record."
McDermod said she has been in contact with Personal PAC, but was unable to talk to the Executive Director Terry Cosgrove and staff indicated that he was the one that presented the list to their endorsement committee. Sometime this morning McDermed's name was removed from one endorsement list HERE, but remains on another HERE.
