Lang Calls on Rauner to Push ERA Over the Finish Line

A top Democrat is calling on Governor Bruce Rauner to help push the Equal Rights Amendment over the finish line. Rauner said this week that he supports equal rights for all, but didn’t explicitly endorse the proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Democratic Representative Lou Lang says the governor should use his influence with GOP members of the House to get behind the measure, which would guarantee equal rights for all, regardless of sex.

An Illinois House committee will hold a hearing on the proposed amendment next week.
