In Olympia there are three ways to "show up"
Shy - Just come to the hearing and be sure to "SIGN IN" on the sign in sheets. You will need to know your bill number and mark pro/con.
Medium - Bring a written testimony to give to the "staffers". You should have a copy for every member of the committee.
Activist - Do all of the above AND mark YES you want to testify. You may be called up to speak.
