Pennsylvania Ballot Access Activists Get Appointment with Senate Committee Chair

For several years, Pennsylvania activists have been trying to persuade the legislature to pass the ballot access reform bill, which in the current two-year session is SB 195. The bill has never had a committee hearing. However, State Senator Lloyd Smucker (R-Lancaster), who is chair of the committee that handles election law bills in the Senate, will meet with members of the Pennsylvania Ballot Access Coalition on January 9, 2014, at 8:30 a.m. He had earlier promised to meet with them on October 28, 2013, but that meeting had been cancelled.

A majority of members of the Committee either co-sponsor the bill, or have said that they favor a hearing, but so far Senator Smucker has not scheduled a hearing.
