Written Position Letter Policy for Public Hearings
If you are not testifying in person on a bill and would like to submit a written position letter to be included in the official hearing record as an exhibit, the letter must be delivered to the office of the committee chair (or emailed to the committee chair) of the committee conducting the hearing on the bill by 5:00 p.m. on the last work day prior to the public hearing.
If the testimony is sent to the education committee chair via email, please let the subject line include “Letter for LB ____” and state the bill number.
Additionally, the letter must include your name and address, state a position of for, against, or neutral on the bill in question and include a request for the letter to be included as part of the public hearing record.
If you are testifying in person and are providing a written testimony, please bring 10 copies of your testimony for the committee members.
Please follow these guidelines closely, as it ensures your support, opposition, or neutral testimony is accurately added to the Legislative record.
