HOW TO SUBMIT WRITTEN TESTIMONY/ SIGN UP TO TESTIFY AT A PUBLIC HEARING
Our work is only as good as the input we receive from constituents. Your participation in the legislative process is important and your testimony guides lawmakers in creating responsive policy solutions to the problems facing our state. The 2021 General Assembly is making it easier and more convenient than ever for you to share your thoughts through technology:
- Review the Bulletin in https://www.cga.ct.gov/ (under CGA daily records) and check to see which committees are having public hearings featuring bills of interest.
- When a date/time for a public hearing is available for a bill, go to the respective committee link to sign up to testify during the hearing or to submit written testimony

How do I view a legislative proceeding? (Signing up to watch)
The 2021 legislative session is underway and because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the legislature will be taking an unconventional, virtual approach to public hearings and meetings.
To watch every public hearing and committee meeting live, visit the official General Assembly Youtube channel for each committee (accessible at cga.ct.gov/asp/menu/broadcastmedia.asp under the "CGA Live Streaming Feeds" heading).
The Connecticut Network (CT-N) also provides real-time coverage of many public hearings and meetings that allows the public to view proceedings as they happen. CT-N provides a calendar of meetings and the ability to sign up for meeting alerts.
You may go to https://www.cga.ct.gov/calendarofevents.asp to view live and previous meetings https://ct-n.com/Default.asp
