The daily newspaper of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the Intelligencer Journal, has this letter to the editor. It chides State Senator Lloyd Smucker, who represents Lancaster, for repeatedly refusing to hold a hearing on SB 195, the bill to improve ballot access for minor party and independent candidates. The bill has been introduced in three sessions of the legislature, but it has never had a hearing. It is in the Senate State Government Committee, chaired by Senator Smucker. Senator Smucker has twice scheduled meetings with supporters of the bill, and then in each case canceled the meeting.
