Testimony

While FPAC is not an advocacy or policy-making body, FPAC does offer support for projects and legislation through testimony. When an issue or bill arises that FPAC members want to support or comment on, an FPAC member takes the lead in drafting testimony. FPAC members discuss and approve draft testimony through a vote. If passed, FPAC submits written testimony signed by the author and the appointed co-chair, and an FPAC member volunteers to testify in person at the appropriate hearing. Below is a collection of FPAC testimony.
