TISL Day at the Legislature

Legislative Preview 2014

The Legislature is pushing hard to adjourn by Easter.

Consequently, late March promises to be the peak of the legislative session. Substantive bills will be on calendars.

The state budget is always the overarching and underlying issue. Revenues are up, but leaders say pre-programmed expense increases will take most of the difference.

Official schedules for the week are posted on the Legislature's web site on the preceding Friday.

Attire

We recommend a coat and tie for men and business professional attire for women.

Lunch

You'll be on your own for lunch. A wide variety of low-cost options is within walking distance of the Capitol.

Our Map of Downtown Nashville identifies several areas with a variety of affordable lunch options.
