Occasionally, CORAS members are asked to testify before Legislative Committees.
Information on procedures to testify can be located by calling the office of your elected representative, however, some specifics are that:
1) Testimony may be limited to five minutes.
2) Written-only testimony is always welcome.
3) If submitting written testimony, please submit said testimony 48 hours in advance by sending an electronic copy of said testimony to the specific committee you will be addressing, doing so allows time to upload your testimony so that the Members can review it prior to your in-person testimony
