Current Status - Senate
Due to the coronavirus, legislative activity on the 2019-2020 ERA resolutions has come to an end. We'll start over next year with new resolutions and legislative numbers. Activity should begin in December. This page will be updated as information is known. The information below refers to the 2019-2020 legislative session.
On March 11, 2020, the four women of the Senate, Margie Bright Matthews, Mia S. McLeod, Katrina Frye Shealy and Sandy Senn held a subcommittee meeting to discuss the two joint resolutions in support of the ERA (together they filed S.918, and Senator Tom Davis filed S.901). The women voted to pass both bills thru to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
A March 17 hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider J.Res S.918 was cancelled due to the coronavirus. As soon as a new date is known, it will be posted on our Facebook page as well as this website.
But this is still a time you can still contact your legislator. The links below provide different methods to do so.
To look-up your legislator, click here.
Check the Senate Judiciary (SJC) link below to see if your senator is a member. If they are also a sponsor of the resolution, a thank you call/note would be nice. If they are not a sponsor, ask them to support S.918 when it comes up for a vote.
If your senator is not on the Judiciary Committee, check the Senate Scorecard. Again, if they are a sponsor, a thank you call/note would be nice. If they are not, ask them to vote for S.918 when it comes to the full Senate floor.
