IRRC will consider five regulations at its June 20th meeting.  To ensure an orderly meeting and thorough consideration of all public input, we kindly ask all speakers to sign up in advance and submit a written copy of their remarks by 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 18th (48 hours prior to the meeting). If any speaker has not yet registered or submitted their remarks, please do so as soon as possible.  We will first provide an opportunity to speak, as time allows, to those who have pre-registered and submitted advance copies of their remarks. If time remains, other attendees will have an opportunity.  Requests to speak/written statements can be sent to irrc@irrc.state.pa.us 

Remarks are limited to three minutes.  If an organization has multiple speakers, they are asked to allocate their time accordingly, keeping in mind that written comments will have already been provided to our Commissioners.  Additional meeting guidelines can be found here: http://www.irrc.state.pa.us/meetings/#Guidelines 

Visitors must show ID and sign in at the lobby. 

Please consider watching the meeting online if you are not planning to speak.  The meeting will stream from this link: https://pacast.com/live/irrc
