Any individual or group wishing to testify at Montgomery County Delegation public hearings should be aware of the following protocol:
With the current circumstances all hearings and briefings are held virtually. If you wish to testify please sign up by 4:00 p.m. on the day before the hearing; to sign up please use the links above - or you may e-mail: RStryer@house.state.md.us. Those registering later than that may be taken on a "virtual walk-in" basis the day of the hearing at the discretion of the Chair.
Written testimony is not required, but if you choose to have it distributed, please email it by 4:00 p.m. on the day before the hearing to RStryer@house.state.md.us to allow time for proper distribution to the Delegation Members. The bill number should be clearly indicated in the upper right hand corner of the testimony. Written testimony will be made available to the public.
Individuals will have two minutes in which to speak; representatives of organizations will have three minutes. Organizations will be limited to one representative speaking for three minutes. There is no ceding of time.
Please note that the order of the bills being heard is at the discretion of the Chair and is not necessarily based on numerical order.
Public hearings will be live-streamed on the Delegation's YouTube page.
