Illinois House Ratifies ERA Amendment
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois has finally signed-off on the Equal Rights Amendment. A number of statehouse Republicans joined the Democratic majority in Springfield last night to approve the amendment calling for equal treatment of women that was first proposed to the states in 1972. The Illinois Senate approved the plan back in April. But the vote is largely symbolic, because the deadline for states to ratify the amendment expired in 1982.
