The work of the Maryland General Assembly is always open to the public; we are doing your work. We encourage you to participate. If there is a bill in which you are you are interested, you can always send an email. Testifying "in person" is an even more powerful way to affect legislation. This year, because of the pandemic, bill hearings are being held online, via Zoom. Although this change prevents the personal contact, there is an advantage in being able to testify "in person" without leaving your house. Here is some information
All committee hearings will be available to watch live on YouTube and also among the various committees' own YouTube pages
Each committee has its own rules for submitting testimony and the procedures for (1) what bills are called, (2) the order they're called in, (3) when and who may
testify, (4) for how long, and (5) any other conditions they deem necessary.
To sign-up to testify on a bill, you must first make a MyMGA account. You will be asked to provide identifying information and a confirmation will be sent to your
provided email address
The signup window for bills is only available two days ahead of a bill's hearing between the hours of 8am and 3pm.
