Five Motlow State Community College student leaders gained first-hand knowledge of how state government operates by attending as delegates to the 49th General Assembly of the Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature (TISL) at the State Capitol in Nashville, Nov. 15-18. TISL is an annual legislative session conducted by college students from across Tennessee, providing an education about Tennessee state government and a channel to express their opinions on state issues. The four-day assembly consists of a Senate and a House of Representatives, which debate bills that are produced wholly by the students.
