DE Green Amendment Hearings
The June 15 & 16 hearings held before the Delaware House Administration Committee yielded powerful verbal and written testimony. Ultimately the amendment was tabled without being given a vote, but with the potential that a second hearing will be held in the near future to continue committee discussion and deliberations and to potentially secure a vote. Please stay tuned as we will need your testimony — verbal or written — when the time arrives. To ensure you are prepared, you could already start to work on those comments if you like. Verbal testimony is likely to be limited to 2 minutes (potentially 1) but written comments are unlimited.
Here are some documents to help you consider the values of a Green Amendment as you prepare your verbal or written comments — whether you do it now or later. Feel free to use any and all info:
