Pro tips:

Is written testimony required in order to give verbal testimony?

No, written testimony is not required in order to give verbal testimony.

HOWEVER IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO SUBMIT WRITTEN ANYWAY!

Why?

Because the hearing is going to be cut off after 24 hours.

If the Bill gets voted out of committee and goes to the house floor for a vote, the legislators who are not on the public health committee rely on the written testimony to learn about the topic before they vote. So while it’s not REQUIRED, we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE IT!
