What happened at the public hearing on the proposed regulations?

Maybe not THAT way

I had been looking forward to the DWC public hearing on the proposed regulations for weeks. While I didn’t get a chance to tune into the Zoom video meeting, I was able to listen to all of the public comments.

If you’ve watched the news, late night television, or tuned into any local government meetings over the last 18 months, you’re already aware there are a lot of opinions about the pandemic, the government, and the government’s response to the pandemic. Perhaps this was why I was not prepared to hear glowing unanimous support for these regulations. Every public commenter was incredibly supportive and enthusiastic about the proposed regulations relating to remote hearings.

With in-person hearings set to be implemented as soon as October 1, 2021 these changes can’t be made fast enough.
