A resolution for the Equal Rights Amendment, which was passed yesterday by the House, was introduced to the Senate yesterday. The resolution calls for the elimination of the deadline for the ratification of the Equal rights Amendment. This amendment was made to end discrimination based on sex.
“That notwithstanding any time limit contained in House Joint Resolution 208, 92d Congress, as agreed to in the Senate on March 22, 1972, the article of amendment proposed to the States in that joint resolution shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the United States Constitution whenever ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States.”
