Political ramifications[edit]

Although the act, on the part of state legislatures, of "rejecting" a proposed constitutional amendment has no legal recognition, such action does have political ramifications.

What does this mean? What ramifications? 68.239.116.212 (talk) 08:49, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

I think this is an oblique reference to Coleman v. Miller. Since it is Congress which determines whether an amendment has been validly ratified, it could presumably decide to take rejections into account if it wished. Mahousu (talk) 00:15, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Opposition[edit]

One thing missing from this article is any discussion of what opposition was offered to the Amendment (& there must have been some) during the 1920's & 1930's. I have located a couple of Time Magazine articles from the 1920's discussing this and have linked them to the article. Also is there any evidence of subsequent attempts to pass this one after the 1930's as with the 27th Amendment?Graham1973 (talk) 00:55, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

A March 1935 issue of The Rotarian on Google Books has two articles by Jane Addams and C. L. Bardo arguing for and against the amendment respectively.
It would seem that the amendment became moot when Hammer v. Dagenhart was overruled in 1941. —Mrwojo (talk) 23:22, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Map[edit]

I'd like to suggest that a map showing ratifications/partial ratifications/rejections/abstentions be included as it has with the Equal Rights Amendment article. Graham1973 (talk) 09:15, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
