One more state
Only one more state needs to ratify the amendment, and Project 28 MO would like Missouri to make that historic leap. We are educating and organizing Missourians to encourage their state legislators to ratify the ERA. We are a local group of volunteers with the mission to make the Equal Rights Amendment the 28th Constitutional Amendment.
Section 1: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Section 2: Congress and the several States shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3: This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.
After one final state ratifies the E.R.A., U.S. Congress will need to pass legislation to eliminate the deadline placed on ratification by Congress in the 1970s. Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA) and Senator Ben Cardin (MD) have introduced companion bills to remove the deadline on the 1972 Equal Rights Amendment. Alternatively, the Supreme Court could determine that it was unconstitutional for Congress to assign a deadline to begin with, as it is not addressed as an enumerated in the U.S. Constitution.
