HEARING LOGISTICS

FOR MONDAY COMMITTEE MEETING

 


Keep Contacting Senate Committee Members

Please Plan on Attending the Committee Meeting

 

 All gun owners are encouraged to attend Monday's hearing of the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee and make your voice heard. Anti-gunners are expected to be out in force, so it is important that gun owners be there.

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. at the State House Annex (adjacent to the State House at 125 West State Street, Trenton, NJ), first floor, committee room 4 (committee room is always subject to change). Click here for directions.

In the meanwhile, please keep contacting the members of the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee and urge them to oppose the package of 6 anti-gun bills and instead pass legislation that targets gun criminals instead of gun rights; protects our schools by keeping intruders out and allowing an attack-in-progress to be immediately stopped on site; and meaningfully addresses mental health concerns while still preserving due process.  Click here for information on the package of 6 anti-gun bills scheduled to be heard on Monday. 

Parking near the State House can be challenging, but there are several different options:

-Trenton Parking Authority, 110 N. Warren Street

-Lafayette Garage, (hotel parking), 1 West Lafayette Street

-Trenton Parking Authority, E Front Street between N. Warren and Broad Street

-State House garage, adjacent to State House Annex (limited visitor parking)

-Metered Street parking outside the State House (meters need to be fed repeatedly).

You will have to pass through metal detectors at the entrance, provide ID, and indicate where you are heading (Assembly Judiciary Committee hearing).  You will be given a temporary ID card to display on your clothing.

In order to testify, you must fill out a testimony slip when you enter the hearing room, and hand it to the clerk indicating you wish to testify.  You will need to indicate your name, organization (if any), bill number, and whether you wish to testify for or against.  You can also indicate your position with no need to testify.  You must complete a testimony slip for each bill you want to testify on.

The committee chair makes the rules about how long each person gets to testify.  Prepare to be as brief as possible -- if a lot of people attend, you could be limited to 1 or 2 minutes.  Keep remarks focused on the specific legislation you're testifying about -- you may be interrupted if you go off-topic.

Make sure you activate the microphone when you sit down to testify.  Press the button on the microphone base until you see a red light illuminate.  Your remarks will not be heard or recorded if you do not activate the microphone.
