Why showing up in Dover Matters

With thanks to Robert Overmiller, a Dover veteran!

So, you want to stop the passage of a bill? Does it matter if you show up to Dover and speak to the members of the committee hearing a bill? Yes, and it really makes a difference according to Dover veteran Robert Overmiller. He shares some examples of wins. When 250 contractors opposed a bill, the committee did not release a bill, meaning it was dead on arrival. When over 300 persons were in the committee room and just 6 testified, another gun bill failed before it got off the starting plate. So how does it work? When you arrive to Legislative Hall, on or before 9:30 am on the day a bill will be heard in committee, clear security then go to the reception area of the House or Senate where the hearing will be held. Confirm the time and place of the hearing of interest and while you wait visit the offices of your Senators and Reps. Please be respectful as you move around building and know some Rep. and senators will not want to talk with you.  They will send out their legislative aid to meet you. Be nice to them! Just before the hearing starts, enter the room and wait your turn. To know what to say have a look at Testify Before a Committee for useful tips! Let us know how you are going.
