It makes no sense for the ratification process to start fresh after 35 states have already expressed their approval for the Equal Rights Amendment — especially when Congress had already extended the deadline!
There may not be a constitutional requirement to place a time limit on the ratification process, but when Congress self-imposes one they need to stick to it. Besides, the ERA had support before and can regain it once the process restarts.
