How to Participate in a Committee Hearing
Testifying in a Virtual Hearing
During the 2022 Session, you can register to testify in a virtual hearing in a similar manner as you would on campus. The sign-in deadline for virtual testimony is 1 hour prior to the hearing.
Submitting Written Testimony to a Committee
If you do not wish to testify in a committee hearing, you can still submit written testimony on a bill for the archived legislative record. Written testimony is accepted until 24 hours after the public hearing.
Get Your Position on a Bill Noted for Legislative Record
If you wish, you could choose to have your position noted. The Committee Sign In – Remote Testimony page also allows you to select a chamber, committee, and bill, then indicate you wish to have your position noted for the archived legislative record.
