School Regionalization Public Hearing

Posted on February 25, 2019 by admin


On Friday, March 1 at 1:00 pm in Room 2E of the Legislative Office Building there will be an Education Committee Public Hearing on the school regionalization bills.

Testifying in Person

You may sign up to speak at the hearing starting at 10:00 am in the lobby of the Legislative Office Building. The order is first-come, first-serve. The first hour of testimony is reserved for public officials, and after that, students will be given preference so that they can finish early. Everyone who signs up gets to speak.

You will have three minutes to speak before the Education Committee. If a Committee member asks you a question afterwards, you may take the time you need to answer.

Written Testimony

If you are speaking at the hearing, you should also submit written testimony so that it will appear in the public record, in the file of each bill. Legislators often refer to written testimony when they are voting on the House or Senate floor – especially when they have not come across a bill earlier in the session.

Submitting your written testimony

  • Email it to the Education Committee by 3:30 PM on Thursday, February 28
  • Put your testimony in either a Word document or a .pdf
  • Include the bill number(s), your name, and your town
  • Attach the document to an email
  • Put the bill number(s) in the Subject Line of the email
  • Send it to

You may of course submit written testimony regardless of whether you are speaking at the hearing.

I hope this information is helpful!

Best Regards,

Rep. Kathleen McCarty

38th District, Waterford & Montville
