Dems Push ERA

Despite the fact that the clock ran out on the ERA back in 1982, Virginia Democrats have decided it is still viable.

Delegate Carroll-Foy introduced HJ 579,  Constitution of the United States; Equal Rights Amendment. Ratifies the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States that was proposed by Congress in 1972. The joint resolution advocates the position that the 1972 Equal Rights Amendment remains viable and may be ratified notwithstanding the expiration of the 10-year ratification period set out in the resolving clause, as amended, in the proposal adopted by Congress.
