The latest news on this front comes from a really interesting article from the Ballot Access News written by the widely-respected expert and advocate for third party and independent candidate ballot access. According to Winger:
The news media has failed to tell the public that HR 1, the Democratic Party-sponsored election bill that has already passed the US House, makes it far more difficult for presidential candidates to qualify for primary season public funding. The Green Party will hold a Lobby Day on April 3 in Washington, DC, to publicize the problem.
There will be speakers on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court at 3 pm, and a public meeting at Busboys and Poets, 450 K St., NW, in the evening. The speakers include Craig Holman of Public Citizen, Justin Jacoby Smith of the Institute for Policy Studies, and Howie Hawkins, who may seek the Green Party presidential nomination in 2020.
