"A Joint Resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, providing for a Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment Bureau for the purpose of reapportioning and redistricting the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania."

Senate Bill 21: Voters Choice Act (Prior Session; 2011-2012)
"An Act amending the act of June 3, 1937 (P.L.1333, No.320), known as the Pennsylvania Election Code, in party organization, further providing for definition of political parties and political bodies; and, in nomination of candidates, further providing for nominations by minor political parties and for nominations by political bodies." This bill aims to remove barriers to candidates seeking office in Pennsylvania. This would make it easier for anyone outside of the two-party system to participate. Link to Bill.
Senate Bill 1295: Open Primaries Bill (Prior Session; 2011-2012)

Pennsylvania is one of 17 states without some form of open primaries. As tax payers, we pay for the primary system for the two parties, however, we are excluded from the process. Help us get open primaries on the agenda in the Pennsylvania house!
