Once the 38th state ratifies the Equal Rights Amendment, Congress will need to pass legislation to remove the deadline for ratification that was included in the original bill in 1972. Bills in the House and Senate have been pending for some time, but action is heating up with input from advocacy groups like the ERA Coalition and Equal Means Equal. The ERA Coalition (a group that MDWA supports) has posted a petition to ask Jerrold Nadler, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, to schedule the committee vote on HJ Resolution 38 to remove the deadline. Please click on this link to add your name to the petition: www.eracoalition.org/ERANOW.
Do it now--and Thank You! ---Your Legislative Committee chairs, Irene Strohbeen & Amanda Prellwitz
