An attempt to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment with a continuing resolution in the Arizona Senate follows a similar attempt in 2018 when a measure was introduced in the Arizona House. The effort was ultimately blocked and will likely face a similar fate this year. Christopher Conover joined Lorraine Rivera in studio to discuss the ERA's chances of being ratified by Arizona this legislative session.
Conover said the same lawmaker that held up a similar bill in the Arizona House last year is now a state senator. Another sign the current bill may be in jeopardy is a lawmaker who initially signed on to the measure pulled his sponsorship from the bill.
"Now there are not enough co-sponsors to guarantee passage," Conover said. "There are many Republican women who are involved in trying to pass this, but you still need the votes."
