Jan 26, 2022 Office of Legal Council Addressed ERA for Archivist.

On Jan 26, 2022, The Office of the Legal Counsel (OLC) Issued a revised opinion  on The  filing of the ERA, as requested by the Archivist.  This memo supersedes the advice given in 2020 by AG Bill Barr’s office that effectively blocked the Archivist from Filing the ERA, even though 38 state had ratified the amendment.  The key issue at hand is the deadline for the ERA.

The revised opinion did not rescind the Barr memo, but clarified the issues considered per the Amicus briefs submitted to the DOJ on behalf of the ERA.
