The ERA has been passed by indefinitely by a subcommittee of the Republican controlled Privileges and Elections Committee.
It’s okay. The four Republican delegates in the subcommittee have gotten their first “ignore the ERA vote” out of their system. Bless their hearts!
It is expected that the full P&E committee will move the resolution from P&E Subcommittee #1 to the full P&E Committee either this Friday or the following Friday.
This cannot be allowed to go by without a fight! We need people to IMMEDIATELY CALL the following Representatives to tell them we want the ERA brought to the floor of the House and ratified:
