A Legislative History of the Equal Rights Amendment in the United States Congress.
Reifsnyder, Betsy
Arranged in three sections, this paper summarizes Congressional action pertaining to the proposed Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) from the bill's introduction in 1969 to its defeat in 1982. Part 1, an introduction, provides a brief overview of the legislative process and explains how to obtain cited publications for further reference. Part 2 includes a copy of the text of the ERA and a chronological outline of the major actions of the 91st, 92nd, and 95th Congresses relating to the amendment. These Congressional sessions, covering the years 1969/70, 1971/72, and 1977/78 respectively, are each subdivided into separate outlines of House and Senate activity. A flowchart is included on each session to provide visual impressions of complicated ERA-related activity. Paragraph summaries and a map of the final state ratification situation are also provided. The final part (appendices) contains a list of abbreviations and indexes of congresspersons and congressional legislation referred to in this paper. (LP)
