First Presidency Opposes U.S. ERA Ratification Extension

The First Presidency has formally opposed a proposal to extend the period allowed for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The statement from the First Presidency was submitted to Representative Don Edwards (D-California), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on civil and constitutional rights. It followed a 1976 statement by the First Presidency opposing the ratification of the amendment.
