ADD YOUR VOICE TO THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS TESTIMONY

You can make your opinion known on any of the bills before the house (or senate) by submitting testimony, either written or in person. Testimony is only accepted in the narrow 48 hour window before the hearing, and new testimony is  required for each hearing, so please sign up for Hearing Notices on your priority bills ASAP so you know when to Submit Testimony next. Testifying makes a difference!

YOU WILL NOW BE ABLE TO TESTIFY REMOTELY FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME!

There is a big difference between written and oral testimony:

  • You can submit written testimony on the measures (or just click "Support / Oppose / Comments Only") anytime in the 48hr window before each hearing.

  • However, if you want to provide oral testimony via Zoom, you have to first submit written testimony (or just click "Support / Oppose / Comments Only") at least 24 hours prior to the start of the hearing in order to receive the Zoom link.

  • Important note: the Zoom link will NOT be sent via email –you can only access it by logging in to your account on https://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/ and clicking the orange "testimony" button in the center grid of boxes.
