GSP State House Calendar

You can sign in to register your support or opposition, sign up to provide oral testimony, or submit written testimony on bills right now via the remote hearing tool the legislature is using during the pandemic. To provide oral testimony, use the same links and select the option to sign up to testify over zoom.

IN THE SENATE: To sign up to testify and/or to register your position on Senate legislation, use this link: http://gencourt.state.nh.us/remotecommittee/senate.aspx

IN THE HOUSE: To sign up to testify and/or to register your position on House legislation, use this link: http://gencourt.state.nh.us/house/committees/remotetestimony/default.aspx

Committees are given the sign in list for bills at the start of the first hearing of the day. A best practice is to sign in by 8:00 am the day of a hearing to make sure the committee sees it in real time; if you sign in later and plan to provide oral testimony, use the zoom “raise your hand” function to make sure your name is called prior to the end of the public hearing.

There is no opportunity for additional public testimony during the executive session or during the full Senate or House sessions.
