VIDEO: Breen Explains ERA Impact & Constitutionality

Members of the House of Representatives debated the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) Constitutional Amendment on Wednesday, and State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) spoke about the impact and Constitutionality of passage of the ERA in Illinois.

"When the ERA came out of the United States Congress in 1972, there was a seven year deadline," Breen said. "And when the Congress tried to extend the deadline, a lawsuit was brought. The lawsuit held that the alleged extension was invalid, unconstitutional, void, illegal."
