Pre-filled Bill S. 0128 removes political party’s notification requirement

This bill takes out the requirement for political parties to place ads in the newspaper when the information is posted on party’s web site. Currently, all political parties in each county are required to purchase ads in a newspaper with daily circulation for things like candidate filing, precinct reorganization, etc. I would like to end this requirement if the party posts these announcements on the party’s website. The requirement has good intentions, but in the day of electronic notification, we would all agree that this is an obsolete obligation.
