There are two high impact actions you can take to support the bill at this stage in the legislative process.
- You can testify in support of the bill during the hearing. Legislators love to hear from the people during committee hearings, especially when someone has personal story or expertise about the issue. Public testimony provides real life context to policy proposals and gives legislators a sense of the positive or negative impact that the legislation being considered will have. Public testimony helps legislators craft better policy. The steps and procedures to testify in a legislative hearing can be found in our guide under the Advocate menu button.
- If one of your legislators is a member of the committee that is hearing the bill you can reach out to them and encourage them to vote in favor of the bill.
