All testimony must be submitted through the Hawaii State Legislature’s online system. Once registered with this system, you will be able to set up a personalized account to create measure tracking lists, submit written testimony without the need to re-enter required information, and receive hearing notice notifications by email. Committees will not be able to accept written testimony via email. All testimony must be submitted online using the State Legislature’s online form.
