Show Your Support at the Capitol

Thanks you for your support and we want to see you at the Capitol Tuesday morning!

To register your support for the bill you have to go to the Capitol the day of the hearing and find a House Witness Kiosk. The kiosks are iPads found near hearing rooms in the Capitol extension. Or, you can register on your phone, but you have to be at the Capitol to do so. All you have to do is connect to the Capitol Wi Fi Network and use this link (http://hwrs.house.state.tx.us/)

It will prompt you to create a profile if you have never testified or registered on a bill before. Additionally, you will be asked to provide the bill number, committee it is being heard in, and the time and hearing room where it will occur.

The bill number is HB 9, it is being heard in the Pensions, Investments, and Financial Services Committee, and the meeting time is at 8 a.m. in room E2.026.

However, the time and room are subject to change, so check here (https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/86R/schedules/html/C3952019032608001.HTM) to make sure the information is correct. After you’ve completed these steps, come check out the hearing!

The best place to park is the Capitol Visitor’s Parking Garage located at 1201 San Jacinto Blvd Austin, Texas 78701. Parking is free for the first 2 hours and a dollar for each half hour thereafter.

Thank you for using your voice!
