This story isn't getting a lot of attention which surprises me.

I would say 'yes', except if states that previously approved the ERA can subsequently rescind it as some have threatened to do, especially in the South (now that it is under Republican control), just how significant a victory would this be?  

Would it not automatically become law though? Or would there be crap related to the ratification deadline?

Probably passes the HoD, but the constitutional ratification process has to start all over again, right? Doubtful this happens.

IIRC that's a big grey area at the moment
