All testimony should be prepared in writing and submitted at the end of each public hearing. This helps OCDEL keep a clear and accurate record of the testimony, comments, and questions.

If you cannot attend one of the public hearings, OCDEL will provide resources regarding what the State Plan is and how to comment. All comments are due for submission by May 18, 2018.

OCDEL anticipates the State Plan will be released for public consumption and comment on April 26, 2018. When it is posted, another announcement will be released with additional details on how to provide comment.

OCDEL looks forward to hearing from you!
