The multiple hearing dates are not ideal, but CASA will push for the hearings to be on the same day (especially the senate hearings to eliminate the need to go in person more than once. If anything changes – I will let you all know as soon as possible. Please begin drafting written testimony for both of these bills! And forward widely to partners who can support. We will be sharing out sample testimony and updated one-pager by tomorrow!
