How to Testify

Here are instructions on how to stay informed about the meetings and how to sign up to speak:
Go to
Go to 'What's Happening' for a list of committee meetings
Find the committee hearing you want (you may have to scroll down)
Select Register for Meeting (or click on the meeting link)
Fill out the form and register to testify (This applies if testifying in person or online.)

Here are suggestions on how to testify:
Identify yourself and reason for testifying
Have strong/memorable closing statement
Keep comments to under 2 minutes to avoid being cut off in mid sentence
Rehearse and time your testimony
Make sure any facts/statistics you use are easily verifiable
Personal stories that evoke emotions are powerful
When telling stories in particular, make sure you stay within the time limit
