Comments

Christine F DeRosa writes:

Virginia should become the 37th state to ratify the E.R.A. We already have protections in our Commonwealth's Constitution; we need to extend this to the federal level. I have daughters and nieces. Anyone who has sisters or wives or daughters or granddaughters or nieces should want equal protection under the law for them. Equality for ALL.
Please discuss this bill (as well as HJ2 and HJ4) and recommend it to the full House for a vote.
