Sunset Committee Testimony

Tuesday, March 6, 2018  
Share |

We have been notified that our hearing with the Sunset Committee will be on Wednesday, April 25th. The meeting will likely be held in the morning although the time has not yet been posted. This a critical opportunity to tell the Sunset Committee legislators why we want to maintain an independent board and independent agency. I urge you to block off your calendar and plan to come to Austin to testify on April 25th. We will make our voices heard when MANY psychologists converge upon the Capitol that day!  It speaks to the importance of this issue that we choose to suspend our work that day to testify at this hearing.  When the legislators see us there in significant numbers, they will pay attention more closely!

Everyone who plans to attend will be well-prepared. TPA will prepare guidance about testimony in advance of the hearing and will be onsite that morning to assist you in registering to testify.  You will be allowed to speak for a maximum of 3 minutes.  If you have never testified, please know that you will have support and guidance, if needed, from many of us there who have testified before. 

Please RSVP here if are going to attend so we can plan for that day.  Please arrive at the Capitol at 8:00 am and the time you will be finished is uncertain. Specifics of where to meet at the Capitol will be forwarded as the date draws nearer.

Let’s speak up for our profession to impact how the Sunset Committee thinks about their intention to create a consolidated board.  Let’s change their perspective and their decision!
