How to Provide Public Comment or Testimony at a Board Meeting
The Oregon Health Policy Board holds a public meeting at least once a month. The board frequently includes one or more public comment periods during board meetings, at which time members of the public may offer oral and written testimony. The board may hold public comment periods which are limited to particular topics.
Timing: Scheduled public comment periods will be included in the board meeting agenda. The time allocated for public comment and the timing of public comment periods within the meeting agenda may change without notice. Those who wish to provide public comment should arrive early and ensure they are signed up to provide comment.
Sign up to provide comment: A sign-in sheet is available before each board meeting at the entrance to the meeting room. The sign-in sheet includes an option to sign up to offer public comment. Members of the public who arrive late or are otherwise unable to sign-in to provide public comment should notify staff during a meeting break.
Time limits: Oral comment will typically be limited to one to two minutes depending on time constraints and changes in the board's agenda. Due to time constraints on public comment periods, members of the public are encouraged to provide written testimony at the board meeting or by e-mail.
Written testimony: A meeting attendee who wishes to offer written testimony or other written materials in addition to oral testimony should bring twelve (12) copies of the document(s). The document(s) shall be submitted to staff when called by the chair to provide public comment.
Public comments may also be submitted at anytime to the board by e-mail to HealthPolicyBoard.Info@state.or.us. Materials submitted by e-mail will not be printed for the board meeting or posted to the Internet.
