3.  How to Email Written Testimony on a Bill to Committee Members

In addition to submitting written input online (Step 4 above), you can email the Committee members.  You can find the members of a committee listed with contact information on the committee pages.  Start at the committee's page:

Househttp://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/house/committees/standingcommittees.aspx

Click on the committee name of interest to get to the committee page, then click on "Email All Committee Members" on that page.

Senatehttps://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/senate/committees/senate_committees.aspx

From there, click on "Email Entire Committee" for the committee of interest.

Put "Testimony", the Bill Number, a few words about it, and 'oppose' or 'support' in the Subject.  Be respectful, courteous, and concise in your message for the best results.

4How to Testify on a Bill in Person at a Committee Hearing

Sample Testimony - NH Network Members - January 18, 2022

Bonnie Christie spoke about Extended Producer Responsibility and her part starts at about 26:15.  Rep. Parshall Spoke first and then Lee Oxenham, also a bill sponsor, spoke just before her. 

Currently, testimony can only be done in person.  There are ongoing efforts to re-instate the option of online testimony.
