HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The State House of Representatives has scheduled a hearing for 10 a.m. on Thursday to hear testimony regarding same-sex marriage and has released a list of ways for Hawaii residents to testify.

The following information is from the State House of Representatives. 

The hearing has been scheduled for 10 a.m. on Thursday, October 31, 2013, at the State Capitol's Auditorium.

The committee on Judiciary would like to hear from as many individuals as possible; therefore, oral testimony will be limited to 2 minutes. After approximately every 25 testifiers, committee members will be given the opportunity to ask questions of those previous 25 testifiers.

It will not be necessary to wait to the end of the hearing to answer questions.

For more information please visit the Capitol website at http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov. For assistance or additional information on the day of the hearing, please go to conveniently located House information desks on the Chamber level.

While every effort will be made to incorporate all testimony received, materials received on the day of the hearing or improperly identified or directed, may be distributed to the Committee after the hearing.
