Take Action Right Now If You Care About UH’s Future
UHPA has received reliable intel that the Senate Committee on Higher Education (HRE) will be scheduling SB 3269 for a hearing early next week and HRE Chair Senator Donna Mercado Kim plans to post the hearing notice late Friday (2/4/22) evening.
Your Testimony is a Must
We need you to submit written testimony and/or testify via videoconference and you must do so at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the hearing.
Pulling a Fast One?
There is a possibility that HRE Chair Senator Donna Mercado Kim may schedule the bill to be heard as early as Tuesday, February 8, 2022. Thus, all written testimony and/or registration for verbal testimony must be done on Monday, February 7, 2022, and at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled hearing.
Start Drafting Testimony Now
If you are planning to submit written testimony, we encourage you to work on your draft as soon as possible in that you will be prepared to submit the testimony before the 24 hour deadline. We will keep you apprised of the issuance of the hearing notice.
In solidarity we stand!
