Status of ERA in Illinois by J.Saletan A complete vote of the legislature was not taken. Rather, after 71 NO votes were obtained, the voting was halted. This could make it possible to reintroduce ERA legislation this term. The frustration and anger of defeat was expressed with a question of how we should now pick up and continue. Should the letter-writing campaign continue? 2. National requests that NOW members go to Michigan for the Republican Convention. This was not considered feasible after the expenditures from the recent Chi cargo trip. 3. Local efforts to put ERA on the Republican platform will be highlighted by picketing Republican Headquarters, at 2626 Westheimer, from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 9. NOW, Houston Area Women's Center, LULAC and CLUE will all be involved. The need for Republican women to participate in this march was expressed. Suggestions for posters: Texas for ERA banner "There's no such thing as a little equality" "The Republican party, a great step back for humankind" "One small step for Reagan, one big step for bigotry" "ERA is not a partisan issue" 4.
