Adapting an oral testimony

  • ​​​​​Pay close attention to the audience and the issue. Will this be a controversial issue where the committee will accept a lot of testimony? This may impact your time and key points. 
  • Listen to the questions the legislators pose to other witnesses. Were they able to answer the question? Did they answer the question accurately?
  • Revise your oral testimony as your time to speak nears. Incorporate relevant points to what you heard leading up to your turn. Answer the questions that were not able to be answered by previous advocates. Prepare a personal, fresh spin on your key points outlined the points before you.​​​
