21 NCAC 14B .0302 PROCEDURE FOR MAKING ORAL PRESENTATION AT HEARING
(a) A person desiring to make an oral presentation on a proposed rule or amendment to rule at a rule‑making hearing must file a request to make a presentation with the chairman of the Board, at the Board's address, at least 15 days before the hearing. The presiding officer at the hearing may, however, waive or excuse a person's failure to give this notice for good reason.
(b) A request to make an oral presentation must contain a brief summary of the subject on which the individual desires to speak and an estimation of the length of time needed. An oral presentation may not exceed five minutes unless the presiding officer, either before or at the hearing, grants an extension of time for good reason.
(c) A person who makes an oral presentation at a rule‑making hearing is encouraged to submit a written copy of the presentation to the Board either before or at the hearing.
