Tips for attending a Joint Finance Committee hearing:

  • Arrive early (7-8 AM)!

    • You will need to fill out a registration slip when you get there.

    • Who speaks first and who speaks next (speaker order) is based on when you fill out and hand in your registration slip.

  • JFC will take in-person testimony at each hearing starting at 10 AM and ending at 5 PM.

    • Each speaker gets about 3 minutes to speak the committee.

    • Be brief and powerful! Say your name, where you’re from, your connection to disability, and share how your experience connects to a larger disability issue.

  • Write what you want to say down and bring it with you.

    • You can send what you write to the Joint Finance Committee and your state Senator and Representative as a follow up communication after the hearing.

  • Prepare to wait!
