How to Testify in a Committee Hearing during the 2021 Washington Legislative Session

Learn about the new ways in which you can testify in a committee hearing of the Washington State Legislature. Due to COVID, advocacy or testimony with the Washington State Legislature this year will have to be done remotely, through zoom, which means there are new rules.

When testifying over zoom, there are some special things to remember:

  • Maintain proper committee protocol which includes waiting to be acknowledged by the Committee Chair before speaking.
  • Testifiers may include the name of their organization in a zoom background but zoom backgrounds that include a slogan or any other material will not be permitted.
