25. Any text limiting the time for a proposed amendment is void as the Constitution only species that

X number of states have to vote to ratify it however the Constitution does not give Congress the power to impose a time limit.
If they want that power though they need to write another Amendment granting them the power to do so.
Same thing for the states that voted yes to it but then later on once they came under Republican control they voted no as there is no take back within the Constitution once a State says yes so those states need to try and hold another constitutional convention or get Congress to propose another amendment nullifying the ERA entirely and if they want to try that then I welcome them at touching that third rail.
