This week the Newport News City Council became the 30th city in Virginia to support passage of the ERA by our Virginia General Assembly. I’m proud of my city for joining this grassroots effort to show bipartisan support across our state. The conservative Republicans who have ignored this issue for too long are hearing loud and clear that we want a vote on the floor of the House on the ERA now. Let’s have a vote, let’s see where our elected legislators stand.
It’s about time.
