Slip a Bill
As part of the legislative process, hearings are conducted in both the House and Senate where all proposed legislation and other matters are discussed. After discussion about a Bill, the Committee may vote on that Bill. If a vote is positive, the Bill is sent to the Full House or Senate for consideration. During the committee hearing process, the Committee accepts Witness Slips.
If you wish to file a witness slip on legislation, an individual must register with the Illinois General Assembly through their internet Dashboard and create a profile. Once your profile is created, you can file witness slips or view, update, track any of the witness slips you have filed in either the House or Senate. Your position on a committee agenda item can be heard without being in the Hearing Room.
