If you decide to speak at the Commission meeting, please begin by giving your name and affiliation (if any) and the number of people

represented by your organization. Then tell the Commission your concerns in five minutes or less. Time allotted for each agenda item

depends upon the number of speakers for each item and the length of the agenda. The Commission is interested in your views; don't

worry about how to say them. If several people have spoken, try not to be repetitious. If there are several with the same concerns,

please try to appoint a spokesperson. The Commission is particularly interested in the specific reasons you are for or against a proposal

because the Commission's decision needs to be based on specific reasons.
