After March 14, written comments must be delivered at the meeting if you would like the Commission to consider them at the meeting; otherwise they will be delivered after the Commission meeting. 

SPEAKING AT THE MEETING. If you wish to speak on an agenda item, please fill out a "Speaker Card" and give it to the designated staff member before the agenda item is heard. Cards will be available near the entrance of the meeting room. 
  1. Speakers will be called in groups, so please line up behind the podium when your name is called. 
  2. Please begin by giving your name and affiliation (if any) and the number of people your represent. 
  3. Each speaker typically has three minutes to speak to the Commission. However, the time allotted for each agenda item may be adjusted by the Commission, which may decrease the time each speaker receives. 
  4. If there are several speakers with the same concerns, please try to appoint a spokesperson and avoid repetitive testimony. 
  5. Ceding time to other speakers -The presiding commissioner may allow attendees to cede time to a spokesperson, but only under the following 10 conditions: A) each individual ceding time is forfeiting their right to speak to the agenda item, B) the person speaking must attach to his/her card the speaker cards of each individual ceding time, and C) the presiding commissioner will determine the total amount of time allotted to the person speaking. 
  6. If speaking about a specific proposal, the Commission is particularly interested in the reasons you are speaking about that proposal and any recommendations you have for how it can be improved.
  7. If speaking during public forum, the subject matter you present should not be related to any item on the current agenda (public comment on agenda items will be taken at the time the Commission members discuss that item). As a general rule, the Commission may not take action on issues not listed on the agenda; public forum is an opportunity to bring matters to the attention of the Commission, but you may also do so via email, standard mail, and fax. At the discretion of the Commission, staff may be requested to follow up on the subject you raise. 
  8. If you would like to present handouts/written material to the Commission at the meeting, please provide eleven (11) copies to the designated staff member just prior to speaking.
