When I looked on the House website, it says the bill is being heard at 10:30AM? Is that correct? If that is so, how would we sign up to testify?

Forgive me if this is a silly question.

If you wish to give an oral testimony, you donít have to submit a written one as well? Do people prepare some notes to speak from?

You may sign up to give written testimony or oral, or both , or neither, and register your position : Favor, Oppose, Favor with Amendment, or Information Only . All above is for each specific Bill .

Sign up is done using the wall mounted touch screens , mounted in the hallway outside the Hearing Room . The screens stop accepting entries at exactly 30min before the scheduled start time of the hearing .

BUT , it takes several minutes for each person to register, and a large turnout is expected . In such situations , it is common for people to still be waiting in line at cutoff. So be sure to allow plenty of time to park, and make your way to House Office Bld , clear Security ( hint - NO Pocket Knives ), and make it to the hallway no latter than 0900 . Earlier is always good, and you will have good company there to hang with .

It probably in the various Links also , but I'll recap for firsttimers what to expect .

Hearings are conducted by Chairman ( or Vice Chair in their absence ) , as the Chair so chooses to do so . The customary procedures :

Each Bill is heard in ascending order by Bill number , unless the Chair elects to hear two or more substantially similar Bills on same specific topic together .

First the Sponsoring Delegate will introduce the Bill , and generally give a pitch why the Committee should give a Favorable Report . The Committee Members then have a Q&A session with the Sponsor , should any Committee Member wish to do so . Could be softball questions to build support, pointed questions to bring out the flaws, or nuetral fact finding.

Then the witnesses testifying in Favor .
Then the witnesses testifying in Opposition .

At the discretion of the Chair , sometimes allows a Panel of Experts to testify as a group . Nominally the whole panel is allotted the cumulative of the combined time limits , but if useful dialogue is occurring , the Chair may overlook the buzzer at their discresion .

They comes the testimony by Individuals ( seated 4 or 5 at a time, in sign up order), all with each person having a time limit .

At conclusion of all testimony , the Committee will engage in their own Debate , possibly making Amendments and/ or changes generally , and eventually will either vote up or down , as ammended by the Committee , or schedule it for later action .

Then on to next Bill , and so forth until the end .

Gun Bill Day

Any logistical update on Gun Day 2/25? IE Where to park, what time to arrive, will there be shuttle buses, etc. Thanks for any help. It sounds like there may be a LOT of folks there (whether that means anything to our representatives remains to be seen)...but I'm not just going to sit home and do nothing.

Park at the Navy football stadium , shuttle over or walk. It is pretty close. Maybe Norton will activate the chat function hint hint and some who have been there can stand by to get the newbies where they need to be with real time updates

Because this will be my first time attending the festivities, I'm guessing it would be best if people car pool? Park @ Navy-Marine Corps Stadium and shuttle in the best option?
Hoping that our veterans of prior hearings will provide additional information.
