- Submit Comments: Oral comments will be taken from participants who are present in-person or participating via webinar. If you cannot make the meeting in-person or wish to make written comments rather than speaking, you may email your written comments to: email@example.com by Tuesday, January 21, 2020, to be included in the dialogue of this Stakeholder Meeting. However, public comments are encouraged and will be accepted until the Permanent Rulemaking Hearings.
Stakeholder input will be limited to discussions on the implementation of SB19-079. The Boards need your help to identify how these changes might affect consumer outcomes, positive or negative, and to assess “how” and “what” changes should be considered to implement the new legislation. Written and oral comments will be available for the Board to consider as part of the formal rulemaking process. If you have any questions or concerns about stakeholder input, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
