WATCH: Your opinion matters — testify at the House

By HPIS Staff
Point Made: How to Testify at the House "Committee Room Tour"

As House members return back to the Legislature for the start of the second half of the biennium, it is an excellent time to plan a trip to the Capitol to voice how you feel on any number of important issues.

But that is often times easier said than done.

Point Made: How to Testify at the House "Signing up to Testify"

You may have many questions like, “How do you know what bills are being debated and when?  How do you sign up to testify?  How can you best get your message across to legislators?”

All those questions and many more are answered in our new series entitled “Point Made: Testifying at the House.”

The three part video series is designed to equip you with the confidence to state your case in front of House members during a committee meeting.

Point Made: How to Testify at the House "Testifying Tips"

The series takes you on a tour of a committee room, walks you through the process of signing up to testify, and gives you some tips on how you can be a successful testifier.

We hope as members get set to address a number of important, expected bills including those on capital investment, minimum wage and online privacy protections, you speak up and let legislators know what you are thinking.
