Legislative Affairs suggests:

  • When calling in to testify, do not use a speaker phone. Speaker phone audio quality is poor and makes it difficult for legislators to understand you.
  • There will be periods of silence – don’t hang up. Prior to a meeting beginning the line will be silent. Be patient and wait for the meeting to begin. After the meeting begins, the committee may take an “at ease”. The line will be silent when the committee is not on the record.
  • Ensure you are in a quiet setting when testifying. Background noise diminishes the quality of your testimony. If you are inaudible, the chairman may ask you to try and remedy the situation. If it is not improved, they may ask you to submit written testimony instead.
  • Written testimony may be provided if time doesn’t allow you to wait. Written testimony should be directed to the committee. Committee email address are located here: http://akleg.gov/docs/excel/Committee-Email-Addresses.xlsx

  1. If you can get through the screening process.

    In reality it doesn’t matter. They will do what the unions and lobbyists want them to do.

  2. The state legislature is unauthorized by the people to do further paid virtual, virtue signaling isn’t it; I mean statutorially due to statute which applies directly, exclusively to the non-working lolly gags?

  3. Does anyone believe in legitimacy any longer? Or is it just a degenerates’ “laughing place”?

  4. You should add HB21 to that list. It looks to open up Alaska Care to all political subdivisions (public employees), this will undoubtedly lead to increases in premiums for existing recipients, the ones the state has to pay for. This will add unknown costs into the future that the state will have to pick up, definitely not fiscally responsible.

    • Isn’t that monthly premium now a sweet $1700 per person per month regardless of actual use? Whee! Somebody is making bank on that. Who though exactly is she; I wonder. Please step forward and let us admire you. Do not, we pray, lurk shyly in the shadows.

      • Oh also, who knew a reasonable fiscal note could be put together for nearly free in two minutes and not wait to third hearing in a finance committee just to justify 30 more good for nothing sitting around spring days. Oh, that $1700 per month premium is what the individual pays, not the state’s “portion” aka three times that per person. Sooo, speaking of vainglorious banks; what a way to start one – under the radar per se. So pretty for balance sheets. Very perky too. They love a bonus or a throwpiece.
