Witnesses must sign up to testify remotely for committee hearings. The committee chair may limit the time allotted for public testimony.
Registering to testify at a remote location does not constitute a guarantee that registrants will be permitted to testify if the committee
chair determines that public testimony must be limited. Registrants may also not be able to testify if there are technical issues preventing
communication between the remote site and the committee hearing room. At all times, witnesses will be required to maintain proper committee
protocol, which includes being acknowledged by the committee chair before speaking and following the rules for testimony established by the
committee chair. Registrants who fail to follow the rules for testimony established by the committee chair forfeit their opportunity to
testify. Bill hearings are often delayed or rescheduled and there is no guarantee the bill will be heard when originally scheduled.
Please check the House and Senate
calendars posted on the General Assembly's website
for updates on any calendar changes. For committee changes that occur the day of a committee hearing, please visit the committee's
Twitter feed, which can be found on the committee's website, for updates. When the bill is heard, registrants could be called to testify at
any point during the bill hearing.
