Tennessee State Capital
I have been in probably 20 state capitals. Some of them are grand, some not. Some are very open and welcoming, like Kentucky and Tennessee where you can walk onto the House and Senate floors when the chamber is not in session, others are forbidding, like Florida with bullet proof glass around the Senate gallery, and the legislative floor being off limits to the public. Tennessee was fun. It is a bit of a climb, it is on top of a hill, and the access is up a couple of flights of stone steps. In Kentucky I lobbied a few times, in DC, I can respond to questions and offer expert advice, but I can't ask for action.
Have you ever "lobbied" the government?
