Public Hearing on March 14, 2013

 

Major Hearing Thursday

March 14th is going to be a “Gun Day” for public hearings.
The Public Safety and Security Committee will hold a public hearing on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 10:00 A.M. in Room 2C of the LOB.
Please submit 35 copies of written testimony to Committee staff at the time of sign-up. Testimony submitted after sign-up may not be distributed until after the hearing.
Sign-up for the hearing will begin at 8:30 A.M. in the First Floor Atrium of the LOB. The first hour of the hearing is reserved for Legislators, Constitutional Officers, State Agency Heads and Chief Elected Municipal Officials. Speakers will be limited to three minutes of testimony.
