GreenLine — February 18, 2022
Happy Friday! This GreenLine is dedicated to all of the national, state and local Green Party volunteers who will set aside some of their weekend off-hours for the work necessary to keep building this party.
Whether you're canvassing on the street or proofreading meeting minutes, you are appreciated!

Update on Kansas Bill for Ballot Access Reform
The Kansas Green Party bill to reduce the number of signatures required for official party recognition has been introduced in the House Elections Committee as House Bill 2578! The next step for us to get our bill passed is to get a hearing on the bill and convince the committee to vote to pass the bill out of committee!
Passage of this Ballot Access Reform Bill will be a game-changer for the Kansas Green Party! After a successful petition drive, it will allow Kansas voters to register as Green and it will allow Greens to nominate their own candidates when petitioning under the new law.
