Legislative committees have returned to holding in-person hearings, but with the new environment, the process for providing verbal testimony has changed. First: both virtual and in-person testimony options are available. Second, if you are interested to testify (either in-person or remote), you now have to sign up online at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the committee hearing.You can still stream live committee hearings and floor sessions through the Oregon Legislature website (oregonlegislature.gov)
The preference is to submit written testimony prior to the start of the meeting, but testimony may be submitted up to 48 hours after the start time of the committee meeting at which the public hearing is held. Detailed instructions are available here.
