state legislative simulation day

Students in Dr. Elizabeth Norell’s American Government class at Chattanooga State Community College have already experienced several government learning opportunities during the semester. On October 12, they can add the simulation of a state legislative session to their portfolio.

Approximately 80 American Government students will gather for the afternoon simulation to experience lawmaking. It will begin with committee collaboration at 2 p.m. and then move to a general session around 2:45 p.m. The entire simulation will be held on the first floor in the Erlanger Health Science Center on the main campus.

Students will experience the process involved in presenting bills, participate in discussions surrounding them as well as learn how bills actually become law. More than 100 mock bills have been proposed by student committees representing Consumer & Human Resources; Criminal Justice; Education, Health, Agriculture & Natural Resources; State Government; and Transportation, Insurance & Banking.

Please contact Dr. Liz Norell at (423) 697-2512 or email Elizabeth.norell@chattanoogastate.edufor more information or about this special learning opportunity.
