Great news! A House of Delegates subcommittee, Chaired by Delegate Margaret Ransone (R-Westmoreland), stood strong against the barrage of "Equal Rights Amendment" (ERA) supporters by defeating all the remaining ERA resolutions this morning by a vote of 4-2This was a very encouraging development, but we still cannot be complacent, since we that ERA proponents are expected to challenge the subcommittee in the full committee, and perhaps on the House floor.

And yesterday, the Virginia Senate passed SJ 275 (R-Chase) - the "Equal Rights Affirmation" 21-19. (Watch Senator Chase's floor speech and debate HERE at 3:41:30) This resolution affirms what is already true - that men and women are equal under the law (and therefore, we don't need a new Constitutional Amendment to make it be so).  

Please join us on Thursday, January 24th, as we personally thank every Senator and Delegate who voted against the outdated and disastrous "Equal Rights Amendment" and continue to encourage them to stand strong against attempts to use the House rules to somehow bring it back! With all of the intense pressure they have been receiving from ERA proponents, it's important that they hear how grateful many are for their courageous stance. 

Join like-minded Virginians to encourage your legislators and thank them for voting NO on the ERA.
