Requirements for Persons Who Enter the Legislative Building

All visitors are welcome to enter the Legislative Building. Any person who is not fully vaccinated is required to wear a mask at all times while in the building. Visitors must pass through a metal detector before entering the Legislative Building. The metal detectors are located directly to the front (West side) of the Legislative Building and in the garage area, which is located immediately across from the East entrance to the Legislative Building.

The Legislative Police will wand anyone entering the Legislative Building after hours if the metal detectors are no longer in service that day.


How to Submit Written Testimony to Committees

Please note that there may be slight variations between houses and/or committees about how or when the committee prefers to receive comments. Refer to the meeting agenda for details specific to the committee.

You may otherwise generally send your written comments to the committee email. Use the Committees menu item, then select the committee to which you'd like to send comments. The committee email is found on the overview tab in a section called Contact Information. 


How to Share Your Opinion on a Bill or Resolution

There are two ways to navigate to the Opinions application. Open the Legislation menu item and select 'Share Your Opinion on Bills and Resolutions.' There is also a 'Submit Opinion' button located next to each meeting in most places meetings are listed.

You will be taken to a form where you can select a bill or resolution, note whether you are in favor or or against the measure, add your comments, and provide your information. We use your address only to determine your legislative district, but do not store it. By looking up your district, we allow legislators to see comments by the constituents in their districts.

Comments submitted through this site are not made part of the public record, but are accessible to all legislators. 


How to View Meetings and Floor Sessions Remotely

Look for the View button anywhere meetings and floor sessions are listed. This will allow you to view either the livestream of the meeting or the video of a meeting that has already occurred. If you'd prefer to watch the meetings and floor sessions via YouTube, you may do so from our YouTube channel.

You do not need to register or sign in to view meetings.
