Simmons’ Bill to End Cross-Filing by School Board Candidates Advances to Senate
4/19/2018
HARRISBURG – Legislation sponsored by Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Montgomery/Northampton), that would remove the ability of school board candidates to cross-file nomination petitions in Pennsylvania, was approved by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

House Bill 638 would amend the Pennsylvania Election Code, which currently allows candidates running for the position of school board member to file nomination petitions for multiple political parties.

“Voters are often confused when a school board candidate receives the nomination of more than one party on the ballot,” said Simmons. “By eliminating their ability to cross-file, we can provide some clarity to voters in school board elections.”

House Bill 638 now moves to the Senate for consideration.
