State Roundup: ERA Resolution Pushed By Cardin Fails U.S. Senate Vote, Moore And Miller Mark 100 Day


ERA RESOLUTION FAILS TO PASS IN U.S. SENATE: A resolution to recognize the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) as the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution failed to clear a procedural vote in the Senate Thursday. The Senate voted 51-47 in favor of the bipartisan resolution introduced by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), but fell nine votes shy of the 60-vote threshold needed to clear a filibuster. After the vote, an optimistic Cardin emphasized its historic nature, noting that he had only 17 co-sponsors for the ERA a decade ago. Hunter Savery/Capital News Service in Baltimore Post-Examiner


MOORE AND MILLER MARK 100 DAYS IN OFFICE: On their 100th day in office on Friday, barrier-breaking Gov. Wes Moore (D) and Lt. Gov. Aruna Miller (D) will be where they have been a lot so far in their terms — on the road. Between the two of them, the Moore-Miller team has been to every county in the state at least once since their inauguration on Jan. 18. In brief comments about his first 100 days in office, Moore said he was proud to have “changed the tenor” in Annapolis, focusing on working with legislators during his first General Assembly session.
