Testifying at the state capital used to be an arduous process, involving a drive to Cheyenne, often through the snow. A lot of things to come out of the pandemic have been terrible, but one positive is that the Wyoming Legislature now allows virtual testimony.
The schedule of meetings and sessions can be found at WyoLeg.gov. Click on the “Legislative Meetings” link under calendars.
To testify, go to the calendar and find the committee or chamber where you’d like to speak. At the right of the screen is a button that says “testify.” Clicking on that will take you to the Zoom meeting in which you can say your piece.
Once in the meeting, use the raise hand feature and when the time for public comment arises, staff will allow you to speak. You must have your video and microphone turned on to give public comment.
Once you’re done, the staff will mute you again.
If you just want to watch, the government is asking you to watch on its YouTube channel. Those are available by clicking on the links to watch a floor session or committee meeting live.
