Check The Schedule
Check the legislative website to know when a bill is scheduled to be heard. Be advised, schedules can change quickly, especially in the final days of a legislative session. You can also contact the legislative staff of the bill's prime sponsor to get an idea of when the bill might be heard in committee for public comment.
Know the Process and Players
Before testifying, know who is sponsoring the bill, who supports or opposes the bill and why. Be familiar with the committee chairs, committee members, and legislative staff. You may also let the sponsor of the bill or key legislators know beforehand you are testifying on the bill, especially if you are representing a group or organization. They may have specific points they want you to focus on.
Know the Purpose of Your Testimony
Understand why you are testifying. Are you there to persuade, dissuade, provide expertise, or delay action on a bill?
