WHAT: State legislators will detail and answer questions about a bill that would eliminate the ability for all candidates for public office to cross-file their nomination petitions. Currently, the Pennsylvania Election Code of 1937 allows candidates seeking to run for school board, county court of Common Pleas and district judges to file nomination petitions for multiple political parties that have become hyper partisan.

WHO: Reps. Matt Dowling (R-Fayette/Somerset) and Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Montgomery/Northampton).

WHEN: Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 10 a.m.

WHERE: Capitol Media Center, Capitol Complex, Harrisburg.

LIVE WEBSTREAMING: Barring any technical difficulties, the event will stream live on RepDowling.com and RepSimmons.com.
