I Testify Before Legislature; Sometimes My Job Is Very Cool
I was asked to testify before a committee of the Vermont legislature earlier in the week. The topic was Executive Branch Hearing Officers. In addition to special education law, my expertise is in administrative hearing systems. The Vermont Legislature is considering whether to adopt various systems/ changes, and I was asked to testify about advantages/disadvantages of various systems and about training considerations for hearing officers. The questions showed that the committee members were carefully studying the matter and that they apparently had no preconceived results in mind. It was a great experience.
